The Enlightened Republic of Southsea is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Luke Zhang with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.192 billion Southseans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eleuthens. The average income tax rate is 84.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Southsean economy, worth 146 trillion Rubies a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,936 Rubies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, war vets look after war animals, almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, and with increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Southsea's national animal is the Unicorn 🦄, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Southsea is ranked 259,536th in the world and 49th in The Social Liberal Union for Most Devout, with 5.9 prayers per hour.
