The Democratic Desert Region of South Ara is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, zero percent divorce rate, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working population of 45.532 billion South Arans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Social Policy. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.0%.

The thriving South Aran economy, worth a remarkable 4,173 trillion New American Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 91,656 New American Euros, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 432,579 per year while the poor average 11,514, a ratio of 37.6 to 1.

Citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail. Crime is moderate. South Ara's national animal is the Blade of Grass, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

South Ara is ranked 150,347th in the world and 4th in Greater Nova York for Most Patriotic, with 9.12 flags saluted per person per day.
