The Republic of Foxsoco is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by John Brown with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.338 billion Foxsocoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 Foxsoco. The average income tax rate is 70.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Foxsocoan economy, worth 277 trillion Bitcoins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,181 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

A cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", all the world's a stage for Foxsocoan political theatrics, and a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Foxsoco's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Foxsoco is ranked 167,721st in the world and 6,317th in Lazarus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -4.27 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
