The Confederated Empire of Sovereign California is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Sovereign Imperatrix Selene Dévnostraéva with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 32.754 billion Californians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Californian economy, worth a remarkable 7,586 trillion Sovereigns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 231,631 Sovereigns, with the richest citizens earning 8.0 times as much as the poorest.

A cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, the government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses, the homeless more often beg for mercy than money, and the justice of Sovereign California is considered superior to that of other nations. Crime is totally unknown. 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 Dévnostraévism.

Sovereign California is ranked 1,595th in the world and 1st in Earth Prime for Largest Black Market, with 693 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
