Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Peopledom of Soem is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Pyt Snarkulton with an even hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The compassionate, cheerful population of 21.524 billion Soemeosy have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Healthcare is also considered important, while Defense and Law & Order aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 9.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Soemeon economy, worth a remarkable 1,406 trillion Ideas a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 65,326 Ideas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, Pyt Snarkulton can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees, and there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Soem's national animal is the Snark, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Soem is ranked 151,717th in the world and 5,914th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -43.47 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
