The Gaelic Servants of Our Lady of Samadian Republic is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 535 million Samadians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dublin. The average income tax rate is 17.8%.

The strong Samadian economy, worth 40.1 trillion Irish pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,028 Irish pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, veterans' meet-ups involve a lot of tail sniffing, citizens who don't recite the Pledge of Samadian Republic at least three times a day are placed on a terrorist watch-list, and female smokers cut their hair and don suits to get into male-only clubs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Samadian Republic's national animal is the red fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Samadian Republic is ranked 106,355th in the world and 1st in Pecan Sandies for Most Influential, scoring 107 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
