The Southern Republic of Glorious Society is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Daniel Ryan with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, smutty television, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.094 billion Caucasians 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 large, corrupt, 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 Arkwell. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Glorious Societyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,509 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 368,706 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Glorious Society flights to avoid the pay lavatories, and dealers go from pushing drugs to pushing up daisies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glorious Society's national animal is the Black Maine Coon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Angelism.

Glorious Society is ranked 567th in the world and 34th in Lazarus for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 37,107.94 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
