The Democratic Republic of Somniaureus is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 210 million Somniaureuns have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 20.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Somniaureusian economy, worth 10.8 trillion Federal Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,398 Federal Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, and commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains. Crime is totally unknown. Somniaureus's national animal is the Mariana Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Somniaureus is ranked 116,015th in the world and 5,794th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -1.41 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
