Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Peopledom of Soem is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Pyt Snarkulton with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 19.144 billion Soemeosy 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 5.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Soemeon economy, worth a remarkable 1,796 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 93,851 Ideas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Every workday begins with group therapy, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and Soem City's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight. 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.

Soem is ranked 2,790th in the world and 34th in the South Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
