The Peopledom of Soem is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pyt Snarkulton with an even hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 16.799 billion Soemeosy are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent 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 receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 87.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Soemeon economy, worth a remarkable 1,355 trillion Ideas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Gambling industry. Average income is 80,700 Ideas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, new funding allows inner city teachers to replace school laptops almost as fast as they get stolen, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and a nation-wide cull of Snarks is in effect. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Soem's national animal is the Snark, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
