The Republic of Sockmanland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Sullivan with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 1.051 billion Sockmanlandians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Callipoli. The average income tax rate is 79.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sockmanlandian economy, worth 122 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 117,012 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, and homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sockmanland's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sockmanland is ranked 27,597th in the world and 1,300th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 76 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
