The Republic of Soirwren is a massive, genial nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.323 billion Soirwrenians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soigné. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Soirwrenian economy, worth 363 trillion credits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 83,973 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Money can't buy love but mercy is entirely negotiable, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, insanely good theatre productions face government censorship, and praying before a battle is a court-martial offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soirwren's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Soirwren is ranked 43,584th in the world and 1,289th in The East Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 83,973.29 Standard Monetary Units.
