The Capitalist Confederacy of The South Oregon Hinterlands is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by CEO Francis LaCroix with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.856 billion Hinterlanders live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nowhere City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Hinterlandisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,359 trillion Shillings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 232,143 Shillings, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 941,235 per year while the poor average 38,113, a ratio of 24.7 to 1.

Grandiose stage parents insist superyachts and private cinemas are children's basic needs, pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, rich people sell their mansions to pay for endless rows of mobile homes, and extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The South Oregon Hinterlands's national animal is the Hinterlands Bull Deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Capitalism.

The South Oregon Hinterlands is ranked 241,508th in the world and 210th in Eurth for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 21.68 tourists per hour.
