The Fallen Empire of Ataraxia Somnia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Os Invidian with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, humorless population of 7.412 billion Somniums are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Somnolentus economy, worth a remarkable 1,160 trillion Sacrons a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 156,593 Sacrons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, the legal system for the political class is completely separate from the one for normal citizens, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, and plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go. 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 144,786th in the world and 6,553rd in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 31 on the Rand Index.
