Sonaz

The Kingdom of Sonaz is a tiny, cultured nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-working population of 16 million Sonazians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.3%.

The strong Sonazian economy, worth 1.25 trillion Golds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Gambling. Average income is 78,283 Golds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 236,364 per year while the poor average 20,196, a ratio of 11.7 to 1.

Statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, and giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sonaz's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Sonaz is ranked 49,627th in the world and 1,712th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 69 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
