The Lucky Golden Holey People of Soem is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Pyt Snarkulton with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.957 billion Soemeosy enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 11.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Soemeon economy, worth a remarkable 4,111 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 147,082 Ideas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One can walk from one side of Snark City to the other without setting foot on Soemeon soil, from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Soem, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Soemeon language, and Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies. 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.

Soem is ranked 614th in the world and 12th in the South Pacific for Most Stationary, with 4,156.6640064 Days.
