The United Socialist Republics of Somurias is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Khrashnov with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory military service. The cynical, devout population of 1.991 billion Somuriasians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yevraziya. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Somuriasian economy, worth 310 trillion Taruses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 156,015 Taruses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

More sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sons of Abraham.

Somurias is ranked 11,018th in the world and 328th in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 373.8 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
