The Federation of Sotoak is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 536 million Sotoakians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monetergrad. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Sotoakian economy, worth 48.3 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 90,202 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, people make a career out of medical voyeurism, and this year's comedy award has left mothers-in-law seething. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sotoak's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sotoak is ranked 17,183rd in the world and 797th in The East Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 2,812 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
