The Actian State of Somner is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by David Cartwright with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.409 billion Actians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Law & Order, and Defense also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sopa. The average income tax rate is 9.7%.

The strong Actian economy, worth 161 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 67,102 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists outnumber citizens two to one, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Actian mussels the biggest in New Western Atlantic, and a New Western Atlantic Tourist Association survey has rated Somner #1 for number twos. Crime is almost non-existent. Somner's national animal is the Flash Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cantuunism.

Somner is ranked 60,219th in the world and 191st in New Western Atlantic for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 2,776.24 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
