The Nuclear Winter Wonderland of Souls4 is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.997 billion Souls4ians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 54.3%.

The strong Souls4ian economy, worth 576 trillion Golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 57,711 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Insanely good theatre productions face government censorship, drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars, EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise, and the judicial branch is strongly influenced by major corporations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Souls4's national animal is the Black Widow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Souls4 is ranked 120,634th in the world and 933rd in Devide by Zero for Most Extreme, scoring 15.89 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
