The Sultanate of Oom is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Papa Mau-Mau with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 11.178 billion Oomians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lily Hammer. The average income tax rate is 34.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Oomian economy, worth a remarkable 1,329 trillion Muriburis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,938 Muriburis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Oom's national animal is the Crunchy Frog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Oom is ranked 25,350th in the world and 387th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 78.58 on the Human Development Index.
