The Sovernian People's Republic of The Blackcat Isles is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, prohibition of alcohol, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 702 million Sovernians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soverndal. The average income tax rate is 76.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sovernian economy, worth 91.5 trillion lencils a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 130,378 lencils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, jokes told in elementary school often come back to haunt politicians, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and government officials frown on anything more technologically advanced than an abacus. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Blackcat Isles's national animal is the black cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Blackcat Isles is ranked 17,826th in the world and 140th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 4,042.94 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
