The People's Democratic Empire of Sopernia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Saddiqui Soper with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.828 billion Sopernians 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 Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Andorra Soper. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sopernian economy, worth 187 trillion sopers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 102,386 sopers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt, and no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sopernia's national animal is the kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sopernia is ranked 126,990th in the world and 5,331st in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.12 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
