The Augmented Reality of Sukma is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Nesiae with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.124 billion Sukmen are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jograjakawang. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sukman economy, worth a remarkable 1,104 trillion Animas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 155,045 Animas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, hockey players who drop their gloves discard them on abandoned baseball mitts, and the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sukma's national animal is the squiddy, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Illusion.

Sukma is ranked 11,707th in the world and 385th in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,034.45 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
