The Free Land of Sungari is a tiny, safe nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 14 million Sungarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 52.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The developing Sungarian economy, worth 464 billion Pybs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 33,157 Pybs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, billions of Pybs are being poured into a space program, and the silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Sungarian democracy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sungari's national animal is the wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Sungari is ranked 78,467th in the world and 102nd in The Union of Democratic States for Most Armed, with 0.34 Weapons Per Person.
