The Endorse Zukchiva of Sokala is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Domingo Rolex with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.215 billion Sokalans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bondoc City. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sokalan economy, worth 218 trillion Nihils a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 98,789 Nihils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Bondoc City Film Festival recently voted 'Sokalan Getting Hit By Football' as best film, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, the countryside is shrouded by wind farms, and whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sokala's national animal is the Red-nosed Koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Sokala is ranked 101,548th in the world and 1,385th in The East Pacific for Largest Populations, with 2.21 billion Capita.
