The Oppressed Peoples of South Pacifica Isles is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by General Shoigu with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, rampant corporate plagiarism, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.906 billion South Pacificans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mordor. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.8%.

The all-consuming South Pacifica Islesian economy, worth 568 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 96,203 dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 629,746 per year while the poor average 5,775, a ratio of 109 to 1.

One year's corporation tax from three international megacorporations has funded one dozen shiny black pencils for General Shoigu's office, weather reports simply advise South Pacificans to 'look outside', concussed flying turtleball players cannot remember their lineup position, and jaywalking is punishable by public flogging. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. South Pacifica Isles's national animal is the flying turtle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

South Pacifica Isles is ranked 4,209th in the world and 97th in the South Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 629,747 Standard Monetary Units.
