The Republic of La Sobek is a very large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 110 million La Sobekians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 20.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong La Sobekian economy, worth 7.01 trillion lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 63,690 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, copies of the constitution are used as toilet paper, arbitration is mightier than the sword, and almost all of La Sobek's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices. Crime is totally unknown. La Sobek's national animal is the Crocodile, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

La Sobek is ranked 80,537th in the world and 80th in Texas for Safest, scoring 82.71 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
