The Holy Empire of Sakkwato is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 140 million Sokotans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 30.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sokotan economy, worth 13.3 trillion Dirhams a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,722 Dirhams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Thousands of picky mothers-in-law have been recruited to serve as even pickier cookery instructors, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, and the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sakkwato's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sakkwato is ranked 91,626th in the world and 30th in Africa for Most Influential, scoring 64 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
