The Sultanate of Oom is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Papa Mau-Mau with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 9.955 billion Oomians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lily Hammer. The average income tax rate is 26.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Oomian economy, worth a remarkable 1,165 trillion Muriburis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,078 Muriburis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, nude art is becoming wildly popular, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', and stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Oom's national animal is the Crunchy Frog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Oom is ranked 5,170th in the world and 96th in 10000 Islands for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 37,791.08 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
