The Federal Republic of Sumalyo is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 784 million Sumalyoans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sumalyoan economy, worth 82.2 trillion Calders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 104,790 Calders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many marriages go virtually unconsummated, the space program has been scrapped in order to focus on more terrestrial pursuits, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, and it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sumalyo's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sumalyo is ranked 15,158th in the world and 632nd in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,807.78 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
