Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Socialist Paradise of Southern Southerland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Charles Darwin with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.828 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, although Environment, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Southern Southerlandia. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Southern Southerlandian economy, worth 244 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 Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 133,806 Sleptons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, and libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 89,248th in the world and 93rd in Renegade Islands Alliance for Most Authoritarian, with 0.16 Stalins.
