Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Socialist Paradise of Southern Southerland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Charles Darwin with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.203 billion Southern Southerlandii have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Southern Southerlandia. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Southern Southerlandian economy, worth 353 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 160,508 Sleptons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, and printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins. 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 165,115th in the world and 188th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -19.75 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
