The Democratic States of Sodamia is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 838 million Sodamians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Egalitropolis. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Sodamian economy, worth 67.3 trillion pesos 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 80,365 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children who can't memorize their multiplication tables are sent to the mines, conspiracy nuts claim that the government is trying to bring about an end to civilisation, pulling weeds is seen as a threat to national security, and forest fires have dropped dramatically as there are hardly any forests left. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sodamia's national animal is the capybara.

Sodamia is ranked 268,046th in the world and 179th in The Free Nations Region for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.43 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
