The Republic of Soirwren is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.476 billion Soirwrenians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soigné. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Soirwrenian economy, worth 442 trillion credits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,831 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Illegal book-trafficking rings dominate the black market, citizens have to dodge their neighbors' drones while getting the morning paper, hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, and being Leader has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soirwren's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Soirwren is ranked 9,120th in the world and 321st in The East Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 134.37 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
