The Prefectures of Sozland is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Yuki Hayashi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.604 billion Sozzies 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 medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, 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 88.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sozlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,543 trillion Sizzlers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 203,020 Sizzlers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Sozland' is a smash hit, trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, and at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Prime Minister Yuki Hayashi's wardrobe. 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 173,010th in the world and 178th in New Western Empire for Most Authoritarian, with 375.08 milliStalins.
