The Commonwealth of South World is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by First Citizen with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.249 billion South Worldians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Red Wolf City. The average income tax rate is 62.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming South Worldian economy, worth 147 trillion Golden Eagles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,843 Golden Eagles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Harry Potter conventions are closely watched by the government for any signs of 'dueling', ten-year-olds are applying for lemonade stand operator licences, women don't report crimes to the emergency services for fear of being arrested, and orientation videos remind rookie female politicians that slaps on the bottom are perfectly acceptable forms of communication. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South World's national animal is the Red Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Old-time Christianity.

South World is ranked 130,496th in the world and 41st in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 29.23 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
