The Anti-British Tea States of Sokala is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Domingo Rolex with a fair hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 837 million Sokalans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bondoc City. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sokalan economy, worth 81.5 trillion Nihils a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,329 Nihils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

It takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, large-girthed charity workers assign themselves healthy wages for their work with starving children, manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job, and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 22,866th in the world and 741st in The East Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 67,630.33 Standard Monetary Units.
