The Republic of Sumerya is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Akkad with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 950 million Sumeryans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Babylon. The average income tax rate is 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sumeryan economy, worth 126 trillion Lidias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 132,771 Lidias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Ancient antique swords have had their blades replaced with latex boffer LARP replicas, there's no such thing as bad publicity, the latest national park is visited by more sharks than people, and astronauts take one small step for Sumerya and one giant step backward from confrontation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sumerya's national animal is the Chinchila, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sumerya is ranked 102,149th in the world and 2,199th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 168.2065242922 days.
