The Southern Imperial Empire of The Dixie Confederate Union is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Jane Stuart with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, flagrant waste-dumping, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.463 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 medium-sized, 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 Capital Dixie. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Southern economy, worth 500 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 203,170 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Garden stores are not allowed to sell water butts, the government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means, students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class, and vacationing hippies and old ladies are regularly arrested for bringing back contraband basketry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Dixie Confederate Union's national animal is the rattlesnake, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

The Dixie Confederate Union is ranked 163,752nd in the world and 644th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -9.75 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
