The Dominion of Greater Somewhere is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its enslaved workforce, smutty television, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.759 billion Greater Somewhereans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Citadel Somewhere. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Somewherean economy, worth a remarkable 3,643 trillion guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 469,536 guilders, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

Amusement park rides frequently collapse due to lack of maintenance, foreign leaders who don't applaud Leader's speeches are regarded as enemies of Greater Somewhere, it is often said that only Leader could bring down Dàguó, and being nicknamed "Orange Face" has done Leader's credibility no favours. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Greater Somewhere's national animal is the goat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Greater Somewhere is ranked 226,308th in the world and 5,955th in the West Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -30 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
