The Strange SociCapi States of SomethingIsWrongHere is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Super Stange SociCapi Secretary with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 1.131 billion Soiswrheyites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capitalia. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Seeueh economy, worth 123 trillion Proclamintioms a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,349 Proclamintioms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The well-to-do in Confederacy of Layem are never on time for important appointments, people are bored of easy crossword puzzles, suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, and the right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SomethingIsWrongHere's national animal is the Zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Weird Worship of Wonder.

SomethingIsWrongHere is ranked 91,572nd in the world and 69th in Confederacy of Layem for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 208.7 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
