The Protectorate of Sonakion is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Second Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.288 billion Sonakions 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sonakion City. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sonakion economy, worth 173 trillion Snöne dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 134,645 Snöne dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, using "inspect element" is grounds for espionage charges, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sonakion's national animal is the Strygian Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Leaderism.

Sonakion is ranked 81,235th in the world and 14th in Empire of the ancients for Smartest Citizens, with 35.63 quips per hour.
