The Peopledom of Soem is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pyt Snarkulton with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, rampant corporate plagiarism, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 25.485 billion Soemeosy enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Defense and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snark City. The average income tax rate is 45.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Soemeon economy, worth a remarkable 3,543 trillion Ideas a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,023 Ideas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.
Members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, a death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, it's best not to ask what goes into Snark City Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, and one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man. 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.
