The Dark Fantasy of Sounq is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kanye West with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, daily referendums, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.394 billion Sounqians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlanta. The average income tax rate is 87.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sounqian economy, worth 668 trillion Yeezies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 152,216 Yeezies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, supervisors in Sounq commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence, and the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative. Crime is totally unknown. Sounq's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Yeezus.

Sounq is ranked 8,156th in the world and 302nd in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 9 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
