The Southern Republic of Glorious Society is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President Daniel Ryan with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.137 billion Caucasians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkwell. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Glorious Societyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,545 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 373,561 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, 90% of active duty GSAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, crooks and people with too many kids are being kicked out of the country, and lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glorious Society's national animal is the Black Maine Coon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Angelism.

Glorious Society is ranked 205,855th in the world and 7,716th in Lazarus for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.36 Crimes Per Hour.
