The Demokratik Cumhuriyet of Sumandita is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Arih Sedef with an iron fist, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, digital currency, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.541 billion Sumanditans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ish'kafel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Sumanditan economy, worth 235 trillion lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 152,911 lire, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 769,157 per year while the poor average 16,990, a ratio of 45.3 to 1.

The government nonchalantly sells old nukes to other countries, the national security service are a bunch of crooks, handsome young men are forced into uniforms by their dominant elders, and former public radio talk pundits are being deployed to front line war zones. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Sumandita's national animal is the crocodile, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Sumandian Ahlamism.

Sumandita is ranked 146,619th in the world and 55th in Novo Brasil for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.5 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
