The Greater Holy Federation of Soap tips is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Bill with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, ban on automobiles, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.138 billion Soap tipsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of yes. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.4%.

The all-consuming Soap tipsian economy, worth 394 trillion soaps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 184,528 soaps, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 698,770 per year while the poor average 33,865, a ratio of 20.6 to 1.

Autumn landscape paintings feature men stripping leaves from bare branches with a vacuum, blind dates tend to result in bruised shins, political loyalty is enforced by way of chemical addiction, and children have nightmares about the eerie red glow and constant whirring of newly-installed machines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soap tips's national animal is the bill wurtz, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is I'm a princessism.

Soap tips is ranked 242,756th in the world and 446th in The Free Nations Region for Most Beautiful Environments, with 4.99 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
