The Lucky Golden Holey People of Soem is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Pyt Snarkulton with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 28.388 billion Soemeosy hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snark City. The average income tax rate is 28.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Soemeon economy, worth a remarkable 4,326 trillion Ideas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 152,406 Ideas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, the government thinks Soemeosy can achieve social cohesion by drinking soda together, and prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Soem's national animal is the Snark, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
