The Confederated Empire of Sovereign California is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Fiora Devnostraeva with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 39.725 billion Californians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Angeles ― Los Angeles NCD. The average income tax rate is 41.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Californian economy, worth an astonishing 13,472 trillion Sovereigns a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 339,143 Sovereigns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, women give birth underneath so many blankets that the doctor can't feel the bump, they say that Californians made a dessert and called it peace, and former arsonists can be found on local fire brigades. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sovereign California's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Devnostraevism.

Sovereign California is ranked 60,846th in the world and 5th in Earth Prime for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,807.65 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
