The Fallen Empire of Ataraxia Somnia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Os Invidian with an even hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless population of 7.867 billion Somniums are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Somnolentus economy, worth a remarkable 1,213 trillion Sacrons a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 154,291 Sacrons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, the nation's air force consists of strongly-worded letters folded into paper airplanes, legislators must raise their hands if they want to speak, and the people's love for Os Invidian is little more than self-preservation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 194,444th in the world and 8,465th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -6.63 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
