The Imperial State of Samonaemia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Samonafru I with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 20.889 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 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Samonaemian economy, worth a remarkable 6,887 trillion Dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 329,714 Dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison, psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, and agricultural science is the most competitive subject at universities. 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 237,928th in the world and 1,360th in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 76.73 percentage of bribes refused.
