The People's Republic of Western Sokolias is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Andrew Carter with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 889 million West Sokoliasians 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenix District. The average income tax rate is 41.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Western Sokoliasian economy, worth 53.3 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 59,956 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, fire stations and hospitals can't deploy emergency vehicles because badly parked cars block them in, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, and the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Western Sokolias's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Western Sokolias is ranked 23,850th in the world and 1st in Crimson Federation for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 76.11 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
