The Dominion of Southern Patriots is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Duke Ian Smith Friedle with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, zero percent divorce rate, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 16.313 billion Suthesians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cecilburg. The average income tax rate is 4.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Suthesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,239 trillion Blackledgic pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 137,256 Blackledgic pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Believers must practice religion behind church doors lest the government smite them with a mighty fine, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. Crime is well under control. Southern Patriots's national animal is the Sable antelope, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Faith of Blęclęc.

Southern Patriots is ranked 28,128th in the world and 2nd in Rhodesia for Most Devout, with 977.25 Prayers Per Hour.
