The All powerful state of Sonania is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by sonan with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.065 billion Sonanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sonania city. The average income tax rate is 82.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Sonanian economy, worth 208 trillion Sonbucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 195,815 Sonbucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli, oddly patriotic flash mobs spontaneously sing the national anthem, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, and the might of the entire Sonanian Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sonania's national animal is the Sonaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sonania is ranked 174,097th in the world and 67th in Kartokistan for Most Pro-Market, scoring -69.56 on the Rand Index.
