The Ascendant Sith Empire of Sotapangaea is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Darth Sadim with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 5.068 billion Sithlings are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Spirituality, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kurst-Amajj. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Sith-affiliated economy, worth 547 trillion dukari credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 108,025 dukari credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, and the government spends billions to protect Sotapangaea from a disaster that is one in a million. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sotapangaea's national animal is the Voxyn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Dark Side.

Sotapangaea is ranked 69,661st in the world and 7th in The Warden World for Most Extreme, scoring 23.6 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
