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 barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.399 billion Southerners 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 Fort Washington. The average income tax rate is 28.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Southern economy, worth a remarkable 2,880 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 342,978 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Immigrant herding has become a national pastime, Fort Washington's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, and basic multiplication is all you need to know to have a child. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 607th in the world and 10th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 106,166.25 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
