The Republic of Soconusco is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 289 million Soconuscoans 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 tiny, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.6%.

The Soconuscoan economy, worth 14.9 trillion Pesos a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Average income is 51,442 Pesos, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Much of Soconusco's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, adverts depict men giving birth while cursing the women who got them into trouble, the barter economy has taken over as the Peso has become worthless, and disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown. Crime is moderate. Soconusco's national animal is the Tanager, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Soconusco is ranked 69,408th in the world and 3,642nd in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,695.41 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
