The Soviet Socialist Republic of Sombrassino is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Comrade General Baen with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.823 billion Comrades are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baeningrad. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Comradie economy, worth a remarkable 2,133 trillion Marxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 217,182 Marxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The navy plans patrols according to how many pubs nearby ports have, the Sombrassino Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, more and more people are signing up for the government party, and the nation leads Lazarus in per capita stalking. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sombrassino's national animal is the Giant Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Heathenism.

Sombrassino is ranked 45,279th in the world and 1,587th in Lazarus for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 69.76 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
