The Woodhouse Sanctum of SocCon is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, soft-spoken computers, and restrictive gun laws. The cynical, devout population of 15.456 billion SocConians 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 medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 39.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The SocConian economy, worth 759 trillion $$s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 49,147 $$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, foreign musicians that Leader dislikes are turned away at the border, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, and grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SocCon's national animal is the Dolly Varden, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

SocCon is ranked 65,460th in the world and 1st in The Socialist Confederation for Highest Poor Incomes, with 30,646.11 Standard Monetary Units.
