The Utilitarian Republic of Sozlanden is a massive, safe nation, ruled by LKY with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 3.128 billion Sozlandenians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bentham. The average income tax rate is 15.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Sozlandenian economy, worth 572 trillion Utils a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 183,056 Utils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, and class clowns are frequently listed among the most dangerous criminals in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sozlanden's national animal is the Sealion, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Sozlanden is ranked 84,875th in the world and 2,485th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,950.53 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
