The Legal Hive Mind of Somacran is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The Percentage Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.418 billion Somacranians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varies. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Somacran economy, worth 116 trillion Quid a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 82,110 Quid, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region, politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems, and television executives are interested in turning The Percentage Council's zany home life into a sitcom. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Somacran's national animal is the Immortal Jellyfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Somacran is ranked 170,849th in the world and 23rd in 001 Alpha Prime for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 50 Whatever.
