The Bimbostan of Somerania is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Bimbo Baggins with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 4.69 billion Bimbostanis have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Healthcare, although Education, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of . The average income tax rate is 51.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Someranian economy, worth 236 trillion Dinars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,522 Dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, swarms of present-laden delivery drones blot out the sun before major holidays, society and government have been organized according to a feudal hierarchy, and burnt-out forty-foot-tall wicker men dot the countryside.

Somerania is ranked 85,504th in the world and 111th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Income Equality, scoring 44.95 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
