The Holy Empire of Sommnus is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by whatever your name is with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, devout population of 6.815 billion Somnusians 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, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Siphon. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Somnusian economy, worth 919 trillion Lire 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 Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 134,882 Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

What happens in court stays in court, organ donation is compulsory, workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, and Whatever your name is is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sommnus's national animal is the Snow Goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Anime.

Sommnus is ranked 187,217th in the world and 6,251st in Balder for Rudest Citizens, with 24.94 Insults Per Minute.
