The Holy Empire of Sommnus is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by whatever your name is with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 6.882 billion Somnusians 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, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Siphon. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Somnusian economy, worth 932 trillion Lire 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 135,435 Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, Whatever your name is is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests, adults pretending to be teenage girls claim to have wholesome motives, and the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sommnus's national animal is the Snow Goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Anime.

Sommnus is ranked 221,970th in the world and 8,179th in Balder for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -14.95 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
