The United States of Greater Somalia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mareexaan with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 33.075 billion Somalis 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 relatively small, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mogadishu. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Somali economy, worth an astonishing 16,601 trillion Shillings 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 major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is a breathtaking 501,934 Shillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bins outnumber trees in city parks, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Lion Dung" has been declared a national treasure, billions of Shillings are spent to take high-quality photos of the Lion Nebula, and it is often said that only Mareexaan could bring down Dàguó. Crime is totally unknown. Greater Somalia's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Greater Somalia is ranked 23,423rd in the world and 908th in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 76.33 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
