The Free Land of Somptueux is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 685 million Somptueuxians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mellifluous. The average income tax rate is 30.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Somptueuxian economy, worth 36.0 trillion Florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 52,558 Florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, and bleach is the nation's most common pesticide. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Somptueux's national animal is the Penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Somptueux is ranked 162,660th in the world and 6,988th in Lazarus for Highest Economic Output, with 36.0 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
