The Soveinian City-State of Soveiniesberg is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Josep Sovei with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 5.676 billion Soveinians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soveiniesberg. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Soveinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,108 trillion Soveinian Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 195,294 Soveinian Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government keeps its thumb on the scales of justice, war memorials have been modified to include hammocks for napping, insanely good theatre productions face government censorship, and movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soveiniesberg's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Soveiniesberg is ranked 277,722nd in the world and 1,407th in Europe for Most Secular, with 3.51 Atheism Rate.
