The Free Land of Simenon is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 30.131 billion Simenonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny government prioritizes Education, although Social Policy and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liège. The average income tax rate is 19.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but sluggish Simenonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,292 trillion franc belges a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,887 franc belges, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nude art is becoming wildly popular, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, crossbow bolts fill the skies if so much as a sparrow flies overhead, and in a fit of passion Leader has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Simenon's national animal is the chat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Simenon is ranked 117,635th in the world and 4th in Universal Dream Network for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 65.96 on the Hayek Index.
