The Republic of Somers is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 311 million Somersians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elena. The average income tax rate is 46.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Somersian economy, worth 27.6 trillion dollars a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,641 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average, major internet servers have acquired citizenship, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. Crime is totally unknown. Somers's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Somers is ranked 118,437th in the world and 3rd in Battenberg for Highest Economic Output, with 27.6 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
