The Federated States of Sophista is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Christian Morrow with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.009 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 Healthcare, Defense, and Welfare are also considered important, 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 6.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sophistan economy, worth a remarkable 1,268 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 158,326 menks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Snap elections are called whenever there's a chance to increase Christian Morrow's majority, the nation is regarded as a paragon of democracy, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, and the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet. Crime is totally unknown. Sophista's national animal is the grey fox.

Sophista is ranked 140,682nd in the world and 7,829th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 28.78 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
