The United States of Greater Somalia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mareexaan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, vat-grown people, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 36.402 billion Somalis love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, 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 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Somali economy, worth an astonishing 19,615 trillion Shillings 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 major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is a breathtaking 538,852 Shillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity, the government is purchasing vast amounts of palm oil for plastics production, solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, and the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award. 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 88th in the world and 4th in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 99.34 Atheism Rate.
