The Peopledom of Soem is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pyt Snarkulton with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless population of 16.294 billion Soemeosy enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded 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 aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 87.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Soemeon economy, worth a remarkable 1,240 trillion Ideas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Gambling industry. Average income is 76,162 Ideas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, Soem's airwaves are dominated by corporate-backed commercial radio, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and punitive tariffs protect local industry. 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.
