The Pot head patriarchy of Soulia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Selassie II with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 7.586 billion Soulians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, although Welfare, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nirvanna. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Soulian economy, worth 787 trillion bags of weed spliffs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,800 bags of weed spliffs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are expected to carve their own toys, 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Soulian Space Agency, stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, and failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soulia's national animal is the Black Panther, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Soulia is ranked 23,333rd in the world and 1,077th in Balder for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 185.21 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
