The Dark Fantasy of Sounq

Regional Influence: Sprat


The Dark Fantasy of Sounq is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kanye West with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, prohibition of alcohol, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.91 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 86.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sounqian economy, worth 281 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 147,195 Yeezies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, the pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, and cheese has become the new icon of political dissent. 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 212,934th in the world and 8,361st in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.43 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
