The United Bowls of Soups is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Mardochée Bouillon with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 876 million Soupians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bisque. The average income tax rate is 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Soupian economy, worth 77.7 trillion spoons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is 88,753 spoons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, and asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soups's national animal is the gnocchi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Soups is ranked 35,476th in the world and 757th in The East Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 3,817 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
