The Empire of Sopernia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 625 million Sopernians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Andorra Soper. The average income tax rate is 58.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sopernian economy, worth 52.6 trillion sopers a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 84,102 sopers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Film studios own the rights to actors' likenesses until the next millennium, being Leader has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land, and unused plastic recycling bins are being dumped into landfills by the tonne. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sopernia's national animal is the kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sopernia is ranked 89,830th in the world and 3,906th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,275.87 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
