CapitalSonictopia City


The United States of Sonictopia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sonic with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.755 billion Sonictopians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sonictopia City. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sonictopian economy, worth 747 trillion Rings a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 157,202 Rings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, once-vitriolic celebrity chefs are now known for giving encouraging hugs to aspiring cooks, supermodels maintain their skinny form by running away from government officials, and male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room. Crime is totally unknown. Sonictopia's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sonictopia is ranked 158,469th in the world and 6,043rd in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -146.33 on the Hayek Index.
