The Control Group of The Southeast Earth is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Collective with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, aversion to nipples, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.076 billion Southeast Earthians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karsenionas. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Southeast Earthian economy, worth a remarkable 1,683 trillion defarons a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 331,599 defarons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Armed police are cracking down on untaxed collectable-card-trading in local junior schools, the arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Southeast Earth's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is State Atheism.

The Southeast Earth is ranked 5,542nd in the world and 13th in The Union of Democratic States for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 34 valid endorsements.
