The Oppressed Peoples of South Pacifica Isles is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by General Shoigu with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.841 billion South Pacificans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mordor. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.4%.

The all-consuming South Pacifica Islesian economy, worth 273 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 96,218 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 403,998 per year while the poor average 14,892, a ratio of 27.1 to 1.

Vile black smog from coal power plants has enveloped several major urban centres, one year's corporation tax from three international megacorporations has funded one dozen shiny black pencils for General Shoigu's office, weather reports simply advise South Pacificans to 'look outside', and concussed flying turtleball players cannot remember their lineup position. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. South Pacifica Isles's national animal is the flying turtle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

South Pacifica Isles is ranked 68,442nd in the world and 1st in Psomewhere for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,235.48 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
