The Dark Fantasy of Sounq is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kanye West with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.893 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 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sounqian economy, worth 277 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 146,582 Yeezies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, a shipwreck is everyone's fault but the captain's, the children of Sounq are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, and one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber. 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 6,981st in the world and 428th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 92.3 on the Human Development Index.
