The Fallen Empire of Ataraxia Somnia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Os Invidian with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, vat-grown people, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless population of 5.655 billion Somniums have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vitae Mori. The average income tax rate is 87.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Somnolentus economy, worth 859 trillion Sacrons a year, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 151,955 Sacrons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The derisively named "Morlocks of Moria" futilely demand time in the sun, airport security is provided by private companies, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, and priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ataraxia Somnia's national animal is the Koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ataraxia Somnia is ranked 62,506th in the world and 3,322nd in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,365.77 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
