The Commonwealth of Sozland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Louis White with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.437 billion Sozzies enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Renver. The average income tax rate is 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sozlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,307 trillion Sizzlers a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 203,199 Sizzlers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The military struggles with recruitment, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. Crime is totally unknown. Sozland's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sozland is ranked 11,219th in the world and 49th in New Western Empire for Most Cultured, scoring 104 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
