The Socialist Paradise of Southern Southerland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Charles Darwin with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.127 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 is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Southern Southerlandia. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Southern Southerlandian economy, worth 543 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 173,740 Sleptons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, and the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves. 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 177,278th in the world and 115th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -18.76 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
