The People's Republic of Sonitusia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Robert Hark with an even hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, anti-smoking policies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, devout population of 8.931 billion Sonitusians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imago. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sonitusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,110 trillion Discuses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 124,304 Discuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

More money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, and a stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sonitusia's national animal is the Panther Ausf G, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Elementalism.

Sonitusia is ranked 97,935th in the world and 4,089th in the Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 42.56 on the Rand Index.
