The Soveinian City-State of Soveiniesberg is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph Sovei with an even hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.339 billion Soveinians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded 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 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Soveinian economy, worth 395 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 169,261 Soveinian Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Radio stations offer prizes to callers who can guess this month's most endangered species, ghost regiments exist only on paper, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, and helicopter parenting is on the rise. 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 136,584th in the world and 619th in Europe for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 585.08 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
