The Lucky Golden Holey People of Soem is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Pyt Snarkulton with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 28.444 billion Soemeosy enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snark City. The average income tax rate is 27.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Soemeon economy, worth a remarkable 4,359 trillion Ideas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,252 Ideas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, corporate lobbying has been outlawed, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, and foreign leaders with unpaid parking tickets are often refused entry. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Soem's national animal is the Snark, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
