The Republic of Sockmanland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Sullivan with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 1.002 billion Sockmanlandians 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 Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Callipoli. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sockmanlandian economy, worth 109 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,533 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People find it hard to relate to soldiers because of the dehumanising masks they wear, the comic book series 'President Sullivan and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', and citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sockmanland's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sockmanland is ranked 12,063rd in the world and 678th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 84.03 on the Human Development Index.
