The Confederation of Soveriegn States is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Janice Rudeles with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 24.35 billion Soveriegn Statesians 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 minute government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jefferson. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Soveriegn Statesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,271 trillion Atlantic Ducats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 175,426 Atlantic Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, even doll houses and dog kennels have to be able to withstand rigorous earthquake testing, and real power lies not in the debating room but with those who decide what is debated. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Soveriegn States's national animal is the tropical penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Soveriegn States is ranked 219,537th in the world and 23rd in Western Atlantic for Most Primitive, scoring -356.3 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
