The Federation of Southern Low Countries is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by HH Prince Albert IV of Namen with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, zero percent divorce rate, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 28.656 billion Walloons love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Namen. The average income tax rate is 89.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Wallonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,692 trillion Atlantic Ducats a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 59,049 Atlantic Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, the wreckages of bombed planes that litter Southern Low Countries are highly popular tourist destinations, CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, and recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern Low Countries's national animal is the guinea pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Southern Low Countries is ranked 44,719th in the world and 9th in Western Atlantic for Lowest Crime Rates, with 75.85 law-abiding acts per hour.
