The Illustrious Realm of Samasbhi is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Rādnya Ārkaeya with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, frequent executions, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.193 billion Samasbh are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Agnimitrā. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Waseyan economy, worth a remarkable 2,417 trillion Samas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 262,999 Samas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents are shocked to find out that having kids costs money, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, the sanitised and dull music festivals of Samasbhi are famed for their reasonable volume levels, and builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Samasbhi's national animal is the Kusaran Serpent, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Syndavi.

Samasbhi is ranked 243,542nd in the world and 6,027th in the Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -27.75 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
