Southern Separatists

Population3.158 billion

CapitalNew Washington


The Empire of Southern Separatists is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.158 billion Americans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Washington. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Southern Separatistsian economy, worth 364 trillion Dollars 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. 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 an impressive 115,519 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 326,086 per year while the poor average 32,759, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

Voting is voluntary, election debates consists mostly of two grey suits arguing over how to best preserve the status quo, the National Art Gallery's newest exhibit is the 500-year old Luna Lisa, and residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern Separatists's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Southern Separatists is ranked 68,518th in the world and 3,599th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 40.26 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
