The Sovereign Republic of South Americanastan is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jack Friedman with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.207 billion South Americanastanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 19.4%.

The frighteningly efficient South Americanastanian economy, worth 518 trillion Northeastern Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 161,594 Northeastern Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Picnickers are lucky if a few wasps are the only animals that trouble them, 'Totally Not Partisan News' is a line item on the government budget, child shoplifters spend half their youth behind bars, and employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, 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 152,035th in the world and 300th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Most Income Equality, scoring 27.05 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
