The Empire of Sobs Boratis is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Marcos Hick ll with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.119 billion Sobs Boratisians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zreles. The average income tax rate is 42.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Sobs Boratisian economy, worth 25.8 trillion pounds 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Soda Sales, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, 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 8,268 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, people can get away with murder these days, and people forget to eat because they are too busy singing Emperor Marcos Hick ll's praises. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sobs Boratis's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Saranism.

Sobs Boratis is ranked 20,864th in the world and 45th in Oneid for Most Extreme, scoring 39.19 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
