The Oppressed Peoples of SamRosenbaum2 is a very large, orderly nation, notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 147 million SamRosenbaum2ians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.0%.

The very strong SamRosenbaum2ian economy, worth 8.05 trillion Toenails a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 54,736 Toenails, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 196,876 per year while the poor average 10,892, a ratio of 18.1 to 1.

Women wearing male lounge-wear are quizzed for hours by mental health practitioners, rap artists are regularly arrested for promoting extremist groups, colonial subjects have SamRosenbaum2ian culture shoved down their throats, and kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. SamRosenbaum2's national animal is the Ginger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

SamRosenbaum2 is ranked 128,050th in the world and 6,595th in The North Pacific for Most Devout, with 8.73 Prayers Per Hour.
