Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federated States of Sophista is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Christian Morrow with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, soft-spoken computers, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.445 billion Sophistans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Healthcare, Defense, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whitecrest. The average income tax rate is 7.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sophistan economy, worth a remarkable 1,118 trillion menks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 150,280 menks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Christian Morrow is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, the nation's apology for those it has executed in the last year has come a little late for some, and politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence. Crime is almost non-existent. Sophista's national animal is the grey fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sophista is ranked 171,261st in the world and 9,493rd in The North Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 19.71 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
