The Democratic Republic of Sokala is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 550 million Sokalans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bondoc City. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sokalan economy, worth 49.5 trillion Nihils a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 89,972 Nihils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, foreign musicians that Leader dislikes are turned away at the border, and there's no such thing as bad publicity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sokala's national animal is the Sokalan Red-nosed Koala, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sokala is ranked 183,585th in the world and 7,457th in The East Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -194.91 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
