The Holy Blue of Somerandomland is a massive, genial nation, ruled by hello with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.745 billion Somerandomlandians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of HsgjwknsyiejbnHehsh. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Somerandomlandian economy, worth 140 trillion brains a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 80,542 brains, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead, the latest "must-have" uPhone is 1/4 mm thinner than last year's uPhone, the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, and traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Somerandomland's national animal is the bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Somerandomland is ranked 178,832nd in the world and 1,309th in 10000 Islands for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -2.79 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
