The Socialist Paradise of Southern Southerland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Charles Darwin with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.806 billion Southern Southerlandii enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. 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 669 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 175,886 Sleptons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Arbitration is mightier than the sword, the horniness of the great-horned Southern Bear is considered a national priority, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. 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 169,762nd in the world and 86th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -23.41 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
