The People's Republic of Somadein is a large, efficient nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 74 million Somadeinians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.4%.

The thriving Somadeinian economy, worth 6.72 trillion Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Gambling, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 90,814 Rubles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 275,065 per year while the poor average 23,324, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.

The sanitised and dull music festivals of Somadein are famed for their reasonable volume levels, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and the nation's weary schoolchildren excel at sport but must count scores on their fingers. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Somadein's national animal is the Leopard.

Somadein is ranked 131,864th in the world and 123rd in Texas for Safest, scoring 51.95 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
