The Dark Fantasy of Sounq is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Kanye West with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, compulsory vegetarianism, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.875 billion Sounqians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlanta. The average income tax rate is 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sounqian economy, worth 276 trillion Yeezies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 147,459 Yeezies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Solid-gold toilets are Sounqian prisons' least expensive furnishings, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Elephant Dung" has been declared a national treasure, the horniness of the great-horned Elephant is considered a national priority, and therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads. Crime is totally unknown. Sounq's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Yeezus.

Sounq is ranked 221,473rd in the world and 8,878th in The North Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 17.02 Insults Per Minute.
