The Kingdom of South Blossom is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Mateus with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.462 billion South Blossomians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 55.0%.

The powerhouse South Blossomian economy, worth 172 trillion Bernie Bucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 118,119 Bernie Bucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

No one knows how to tie a reef knot, the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, no one tells their son "you're the man of the house" any more, and rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Blossom's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

South Blossom is ranked 168,485th in the world and 6,819th in the South Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -4.2 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
