The Federation of Sovern is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Kirkiv with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 8.404 billion Soverns have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valis. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sovern economy, worth a remarkable 2,251 trillion Vores a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 267,881 Vores, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Vaccinations are mandatory, patriots insist that size does matter, pallbearers at military funerals dive for cover when they hear the three-volley salute, and court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sovern's national animal is the Velku Jay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sovern is ranked 42,396th in the world and 7th in Barbaria for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.86 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
