The People's Republic of South Seatlantis is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 521 million South Seatlantics are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dujopolis. The average income tax rate is 54.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The South Seatlantisian economy, worth 22.9 trillion Hydras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 43,980 Hydras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only the fast and the furious are brave enough to drive, napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations, the typical murderer weighs 150kg and has hairy arms, and the state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Seatlantis's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

South Seatlantis is ranked 40,047th in the world and 1,470th in Lazarus for Most Income Equality, scoring 54.32 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
