The Sovereign Republic of South Americanastan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jack Friedman with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.701 billion South Americanastanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Halifax. The average income tax rate is 14.5%.

The frighteningly efficient South Americanastanian economy, worth 269 trillion Northeastern Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 158,595 Northeastern Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Jack Friedman's opponents have adopted dogs to chase away the mailman, the South Americanastanian war navy contains an oddly large number of luxury yachts and cruise liners, weighted heels are added to military boots to ensure diminutive celebrities meet minimum requirements, and the year's most anticipated show is "Great Deals on Delicious Meals". Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. South Americanastan's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

South Americanastan is ranked 168,165th in the world and 304th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 28.74 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
