The Most Serene Duchy of Soniava is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Attis with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, otherworldly petting zoo, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.772 billion Soniavans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pylai. The average income tax rate is 64.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Soniavan economy, worth 353 trillion Sonies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 127,351 Sonies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, the nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free, pulling weeds is seen as a threat to national security, and space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Soniava. Crime is totally unknown. Soniava's national animal is the Herring, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Pastafarian.

Soniava is ranked 56,292nd in the world and 603rd in Europe for Lowest Crime Rates, with 68.78 law-abiding acts per hour.
