South money

The Commonwealth of South money is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 725 million South moneyians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.5%.

The thriving South moneyian economy, worth 45.7 trillion goilds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 63,057 goilds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 475,462 per year while the poor average 2,376, a ratio of 200 to 1.

Directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use South money City as a backdrop, it is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language, there's often a little nagging voice suggesting that parents aren't keeping their kids safe, and crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. South money's national animal is the Anime Waifu, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

South money is ranked 149,066th in the world and 2nd in Brotherhood of the Silver Square for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.96 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
