The Theocracy of SamekovLand is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its aversion to nipples, compulsory vegetarianism, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 583 million SamekovLandians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 23.9%.

The all-consuming SamekovLandian economy, worth 47.7 trillion Golds a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 81,885 Golds, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Child shoplifters spend half their youth behind bars, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, debate rages over whether ground fish guts can be spread on fields, and children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SamekovLand's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

SamekovLand is ranked 20,500th in the world and 23rd in New Western Atlantic for Fattest Citizens, with 14.52 Obesity Rate.
