The Holy Empire of Socratic Eutopia is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions. The cynical, devout population of 340 million Socratic Eutopians 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 medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 38.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Socratic Eutopian economy, worth 12.4 trillion Gold coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,359 Gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, bris parties are all the rage, most barbers are also surgeons, and EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socratic Eutopia's national animal is the dog, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Socratic Eutopia is ranked 62,762nd in the world and 1st in Eutopian Commonwealth for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,638.27 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
