The Lucky Golden Holey People of Soem is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Pyt Snarkulton with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 28.132 billion Soemeosy enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snark City. The average income tax rate is 19.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Soemeon economy, worth a remarkable 4,249 trillion Ideas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 151,056 Ideas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Pyt Snarkulton's bedroom, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Snark City, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature'. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Soem's national animal is the Snark, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Soem is ranked 205,700th in the world and 7,637th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -63.87 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
