The Republic of -Sutherland is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-working, cynical population of 508 million Sutherlandians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The medium-sized, moralistic, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.0%.

The very strong -Sutherlandian economy, worth 26.6 trillion kronor a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 52,353 kronor, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 210,086 per year while the poor average 8,744, a ratio of 24.0 to 1.

A burger chain recently changed its name to Mack Donaldz for legal reasons, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to -Sutherlandian politicians, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. -Sutherland's national animal is the swan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

-Sutherland is ranked 223,022nd in the world and 9,114th in the South Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -7.07 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
