The Democratic Republic of Sokala is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 375 million Sokalans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bondoc City. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Sokalan economy, worth 31.0 trillion Nihils a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 82,679 Nihils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians, snap elections are called over every minor impasse, and military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sokala's national animal is the Sokalan Red-nosed Koala, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sokala is ranked 31,651st in the world and 931st in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 73.03 on the Human Development Index.
