Free Republic of Sonora

Population1.163 billion

LeaderEl Presidente


The Federal Republic of Free Republic of Sonora is a massive, genial nation, ruled by El Presidente with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.163 billion sonorenses have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hermosillo. The average income tax rate is 39.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient  Free Republic of Sonora economy, worth 144 trillion pesos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 123,846 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, arbitration is mightier than the sword, people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, and late night talk show hosts are having a field day over El Presidente's questionably sane new coalition partners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Free Republic of Sonora's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Free Republic of Sonora is ranked 14,372nd in the world and 445th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 81.54 on the Human Development Index.
