The Soveinian City-State of Soveiniesberg is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph Sovei with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.529 billion Soveinians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt 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 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Soveinian economy, worth 441 trillion Soveinian Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 174,661 Soveinian Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, a bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, and residential tower blocks are surrounded by warrens of concrete tunnels. 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 Eastern Orthodox.

Soveiniesberg is ranked 15,313th in the world and 273rd in Europe for Healthiest Citizens, with 11.95 bananas ingested per day.
