The Republic of Sockmanland is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 300 million Sockmanlandians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Callipoli. The average income tax rate is 52.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sockmanlandian economy, worth 24.1 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,303 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Agreeing to appear on TV is often the best way to access social care, a government program is underway to revitalize Sockmanland's beaches, some are born loving old plays and some have old plays thrust upon them, and lending money has become a major liability. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sockmanland's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sockmanland is ranked 144,493rd in the world and 7,389th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.89 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
