The Republic of SomeWhereSouthOfUS is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.051 billion SomeWhereSouthOfUSians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 81.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming SomeWhereSouthOfUSian economy, worth 102 trillion Trolls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 97,922 Trolls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for SomeWhereSouthOfUS, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across SomeWhereSouthOfUS, and snap elections are called over every minor impasse. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SomeWhereSouthOfUS's national animal is the T-1000, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

SomeWhereSouthOfUS is ranked 198,334th in the world and 39th in Niamark for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -7.24 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
