The Walled City of Sonindia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Heavenly Parliament with a fair hand, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.654 billion Sonindians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Inner Sanctum. The average income tax rate is 7.7%.

The very strong Sonindian economy, worth 181 trillion Pocket Maps a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 49,651 Pocket Maps, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Heavenly Parliament's power is effectively nullified as no bill becomes law without the upper house's support, the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, and the law forbids arson, murder, and low-quality cheese. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sonindia's national animal is the Defending Wolf and its national religion is Taoist Christianity.

Sonindia is ranked 109,386th in the world and 217th in Sonindia for Highest Average Incomes, with 49,651.55 Standard Monetary Units.
