The Peopledom of Soem is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Pyt Snarkulton with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 16.608 billion Soemeosy enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Education, with Healthcare and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Soemeon economy, worth a remarkable 1,324 trillion Ideas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Gambling industry. Average income is 79,721 Ideas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, and the rich are forced to sell their cars to pay for more police to prevent their cars from being stolen. 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.
