The Fallen Empire of Ataraxia Somnia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Os Invidian with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless population of 5.622 billion Somniums 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vitae Mori. The average income tax rate is 87.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Somnolentus economy, worth 860 trillion Sacrons a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 153,061 Sacrons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ataraxia Somnia's national animal is the Koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ataraxia Somnia is ranked 41,800th in the world and 2,073rd in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 3,655.85 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
