The Republic of South Waziristan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by General Al-Kash with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.415 billion South Waziristanis 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Waziria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.6%.

The frighteningly efficient South Waziristanian economy, worth 179 trillion Ziris a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 126,528 Ziris, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 536,875 per year while the poor average 19,234, a ratio of 27.9 to 1.

Meetings are often scheduled for "about four-ish" following complete conversion to sundials, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness', and military geniuses responsible for brilliant campaigns are drummed out because they have close same-sex friends and an interest in interior design. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Waziristan's national animal is the Camel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Sunni Islam.

South Waziristan is ranked 11,247th in the world and 1st in Suppressia for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 27.91 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
