|Leader||Chancellor Coretta Long|
The Most Serene Republic of Southland is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chancellor Coretta Long with a fair hand, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 8.013 billion Southlanders 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Southland City. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Southlander economy, worth a remarkable 1,606 trillion Southland Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 200,487 Southland Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, the new coalition government is so large nobody knows where it begins, and government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities. Crime is totally unknown. Southland's national animal is the Orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
