The Federated States of Sophista is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Christian Morrow with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.7 billion Sophistans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The tiny, liberal, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Defense, Healthcare, 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 5.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Sophistan economy, worth a remarkable 1,025 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 153,061 menks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Royalist is the most offensive slur in the Sophistan language, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime is almost non-existent. Sophista's national animal is the grey fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
