The Holy Empire of Sounkaopia is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 382 million Sounkaopians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zerunovi City. The average income tax rate is 49.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sounkaopian economy, worth 38.5 trillion Krivones a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,905 Krivones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Arbitration is mightier than the sword, newly-peaceful nations are forced to use assault rifles as farming tools due to a lack of funds for purchasing anything else, drones are unable to lift the weight of their accompanying paperwork, and Sounkaopia has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sounkaopia's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sounkaopia is ranked 31,445th in the world and 1,672nd in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 107.09 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
