The People's Republic of New Samon is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chairwoman Leilani Kai with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 3.879 billion Samons are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taone o Hamona. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Samonian economy, worth 478 trillion pearls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 123,474 pearls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, the government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on. Crime is totally unknown. New Samon's national animal is the fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

New Samon is ranked 4,851st in the world and 55th in The Leftist Assembly for Best Weather, with 305 meters of sunlight.
