The Imperial State of Samonaemia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Samonafru I with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, anti-smoking policies, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 16.789 billion Samonaemians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Samo-Par. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Samonaemian economy, worth a remarkable 5,193 trillion Dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 309,335 Dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and depression sinks in after each election when voters realize they are stuck with these people for years. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Samonaemia's national animal is the northern feathered dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Samonamism.

Samonaemia is ranked 207,154th in the world and 1,618th in 10000 Islands for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.19 Crimes Per Hour.
