The Federated States of Sophista is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Christian Morrow with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.085 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, with Defense, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Administration aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whitecrest. The average income tax rate is 5.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Sophistan economy, worth a remarkable 1,086 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 153,416 menks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, S-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, and citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless. Crime is well under control. Sophista's national animal is the grey fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
