The Commonwealth of South Bellcon is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 125 million South Bellconians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 9.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The South Bellconian economy, worth 6.72 trillion South Bellconian bells a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 53,748 South Bellconian bells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, new pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. South Bellcon's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

South Bellcon is ranked 97,992nd in the world and 3,923rd in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 50.37 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
