The Sultanate of Oom is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Papa Mau-Mau with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 9.496 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 is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lily Hammer. The average income tax rate is 19.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Oomian economy, worth a remarkable 1,147 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 120,884 Muriburis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, and orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious 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 111,443rd in the world and 1,236th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,239.42 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
