OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of South Skorm is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Lee Protoss with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.714 billion South Skormians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tarsonis City. The average income tax rate is 4%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Tourism and Arms Manufacturing.

The government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, all streets are privately owned toll roads, the explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape South Skorm, and members of majority races are forced out of their homes to make way for Bigtopians. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. South Skorm's national animal is the The Zerg, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Starcraft, and its currency is the South Skorm.

South Skorm is ranked 19th in Le FoPo Division and 110,998th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -79 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
