The Empire of Soubrolon is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.267 billion Soubrolonians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Soubrolonian economy, worth 187 trillion Geods a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 22,690 Geods, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, military spending is on the increase, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and the government is reining in public spending. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soubrolon's national animal is the Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Soubrolon is ranked 159,052nd in the world and 11th in Kyorgia puppet storage for Most Developed, scoring 41.58 on the Human Development Index.
