The United Socialist States of Somurias is a very large, orderly nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, enslaved workforce, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical population of 196 million Somuriasians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Somuriasian economy, worth 9.15 trillion Taruses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 46,675 Taruses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists outnumber citizens two to one, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, Leader can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Somurias's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Somurias is ranked 25,243rd in the world and 771st in the South Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,862.19 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
