The Republic of Sozlanden is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chairman of the OECD with a fair hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-working, democratic population of 829 million Sozlandenians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Faire. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.5%.

The powerhouse Sozlandenian economy, worth 103 trillion Bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 124,325 Bitcoins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 560,722 per year while the poor average 16,975, a ratio of 33.0 to 1.

There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', the government's stance on marriage is 'Let Sozlandenians marry themselves', glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, and broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sozlanden's national animal is the Sealion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sozlanden is ranked 30,193rd in the world and 931st in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 75.28 on the Human Development Index.
