The Kingdom of South Blossom is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Mateus with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.864 billion South Blossomians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 64.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient South Blossomian economy, worth 849 trillion Bernie Bucks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 144,916 Bernie Bucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The wheel has been patented by at least a hundred people, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, and the explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape South Blossom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. South Blossom's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

South Blossom is ranked 15,739th in the world and 399th in the South Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
