The Illustrious Realm of Samasbhi is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Rādnya Ārkaeya with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, avowedly heterosexual populace, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.518 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. 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 1,912 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 common. Average income is an amazing 254,397 Samas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, Samasbhi is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap. 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 Kusāran Serpent, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Syndavi.

Samasbhi is ranked 204,900th in the world and 7,455th in the Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -19.18 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
