The Mutinous Arcadian Schism of Sovereign Wilderness is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Freemen's Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, feral children, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.995 billion Freemen are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of William's Burroughs. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Free economy, worth 564 trillion hours a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,340 hours, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens select which government department gets their income tax hours each year, bungee jumpers rarely go splat, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, and the beauty of coastal towns is marred only slightly by all the closed-down storefronts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sovereign Wilderness's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Wild Hunt.

Sovereign Wilderness is ranked 17,551st in the world and 2nd in The Horde for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 78.56 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
