The People's Democratic Empire of Sopernia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Saddiqui Soper with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.797 billion Sopernians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Andorra Soper. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sopernian economy, worth 183 trillion sopers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 102,386 sopers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt, and no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sopernia's national animal is the kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sopernia is ranked 173,027th in the world and 4,154th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 65.9 billion Standard Monetary Units.
