The Commonwealth of Empess Sommes is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 271 million Empess Sommesians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 51.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Empess Sommesian economy, worth 16.2 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,708 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Lending money has become a major liability, cold medicines curiously become cheaper when government officials sneeze, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, and the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empess Sommes's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Empess Sommes is ranked 91,132nd in the world and 160th in Sonindia for Rudest Citizens, with 46.39 Insults Per Minute.
