The Fallen Empire of Ataraxia Somnia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Os Invidian with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, humorless population of 7.998 billion Somniums are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vitae Mori. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Somnolentus economy, worth a remarkable 1,234 trillion Sacrons a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 154,413 Sacrons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Somnolentus police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, politicians are fired for opening subjective statements with "I believe", war vets look after war animals, and woefully uninformed voters cast their ballots at random. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ataraxia Somnia's national animal is the Koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ataraxia Somnia is ranked 221,738th in the world and 9,739th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -264.6 on the Hayek Index.
