The Socialist Paradise of Southern Southerland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Charles Darwin with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.453 billion Southern Southerlandii 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.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Southern Southerlandia. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Southern Southerlandian economy, worth 601 trillion Sleptons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 174,169 Sleptons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government finds the idea of having an army to be rather distasteful, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, and travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern Southerland's national animal is the Southern Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Southern Southerland is ranked 3,300th in the world and 7th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 96.58 Effective Tax Rate.
