The Empire of South Alezia is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.54 billion South Alezians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baerland. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The powerhouse South Alezian economy, worth 119 trillion Uhhhs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 77,572 Uhhhs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 563,471 per year while the poor average 3,357, a ratio of 167 to 1.

The government is constantly playing a game of four-dimensional economic chess with health insurance firms, a major religion has been named as South Alezia's national religion, Leader has been known to threaten dissenting citizens with a machine gun at press conferences, and the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. South Alezia's national animal is the National Animal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

South Alezia is ranked 236,423rd in the world and 6,180th in the Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 12.79 Tourists Per Hour.
