The Sojournocracy of Savopia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Sojourners with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 7.428 billion Savopians 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, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solomon Yedidyah. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Savopian economy, worth a remarkable 1,696 trillion Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 228,388 Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

People with political aspirations study how to make balloon animals, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Coin treacle machine, Savopia's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, and young criminals are told they'll go to bed without supper if they do it again. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Savopia's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sound Doctrine.

Savopia is ranked 54,092nd in the world and 56th in Southfield for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 2,730.18 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
