The Empire of Southern Separatists is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.864 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 36.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Southern Separatistsian economy, worth 220 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 118,338 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 347,737 per year while the poor average 31,726, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.
There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, artists regularly face criminal charges and art-burning parties are common, and voting is voluntary. 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.
