Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Southern Separatists is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.569 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 43.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Southern Separatistsian economy, worth 293 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 114,330 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 336,946 per year while the poor average 30,525, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

Artists regularly face criminal charges and art-burning parties are common, voting is voluntary, election debates consists mostly of two grey suits arguing over how to best preserve the status quo, and the National Art Gallery's newest exhibit is the 500-year old Luna Lisa. 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 17,421st in the world and 839th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 220.62 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
