The Soviet Socialist Republic of Sombrassino is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Comrade General Baen with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.153 billion Comrades are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baeningrad. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Comradie economy, worth a remarkable 1,964 trillion Marxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 214,659 Marxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has little issue with allowing its citizens to languish in foreign jails, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, and the government builds houses for foreign newcomers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sombrassino's national animal is the Giant Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Heathenism.

Sombrassino is ranked 436th in the world and 21st in Lazarus for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 6,575.28 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
