The Bun eaters of Sowia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by toki with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, national health service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.606 billion Sowians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of dumb city. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Sowian economy, worth a remarkable 1,152 trillion buns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 250,224 buns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,136,199 per year while the poor average 33,750, a ratio of 33.7 to 1.

Pros are the new cons, the nation's laws on image rights are amongst the strictest in the world, only the brainiest citizens become academics, and the smell of napalm in the morning is usually alongside grilled breadwalker. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sowia's national animal is the breadwalker, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is food.

Sowia is ranked 61,851st in the world and 1st in Comfy Mansion for Most Pro-Market, scoring 54.89 on the Rand Index.
