The People's Republic of Sodoran Alesia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Kirk Socramander with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.5 billion Sodoran Alesians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coastal Tiber. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Sodoran Alesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,970 trillion leutesmarks 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 231,782 leutesmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, and a government program is underway to revitalize Sodoran Alesia's beaches. Crime is totally unknown. Sodoran Alesia's national animal is the Haast's Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sodoran Alesia is ranked 950th in the world and 28th in The Communist Bloc for Most Developed, scoring 98.37 on the Human Development Index.
