The Southern Republic of The Dixie Confederate Union is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Admiral Jane Stuart-Jones with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, aversion to nipples, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.066 billion Dixie Confederates are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Southern economy, worth a remarkable 2,152 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 354,854 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,413,080 per year while the poor average 60,025, a ratio of 23.5 to 1.

Mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, hand-to-hand combat experience is udderly essential for all dairy ranchers, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, and the request to "give us our daily bread" can only be fulfilled six days out of seven. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Dixie Confederate Union's national animal is the fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Southern Catholicism.

The Dixie Confederate Union is ranked 216,080th in the world and 235th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -8.21 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
