The Politeia of Sophisica is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.155 billion Sophisicans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arnholdtica. The average income tax rate is 25.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Sophisican economy, worth 263 trillion gnosoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,528 gnosoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
The government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget', military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes, and tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens. Crime is totally unknown. Sophisica's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
