The Peopledom of Soem is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Pyt Snarkulton with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 17.859 billion Soemeosy are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The tiny government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Public Transport, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. The average income tax rate is 2.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Soemeon economy, worth a remarkable 1,406 trillion Ideas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 78,753 Ideas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The fire protection service is wholly government-funded, getting a abortion takes less hassle than writing a letter, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, and factories grind to a halt every time there is an election. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, 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.
