Sumeria is a country in Mesopotamia where it is always summer (and never the Fourth of July). If you think this sounds nice, just remember that your crops will do badly unless you have an advanced irrigation system.

Beer and baseball[1] were invented there.

They write in Runes that are on steroids there.
