The Really Unfortunate Puppet of South Poleande is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Duntcarr Abut Yeurbying with a fair hand, and notable for its burgeoning fishbird population. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.429 billion South Poleandeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Polinske. The average income tax rate is 17.0%.

The South Poleandean economy, worth 88.2 trillion arlues a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 61,693 arlues, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Pictures of government employees with expensive Pearbooks 'working' on exotic beaches dominate local tabloids, biology and religious education classes have recently been merged, it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, and a major religion has been named as South Poleande's national religion. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Poleande's national animal is the fishbird, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

South Poleande is ranked 79,829th in the world and 2,645th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 52.51 on the Human Development Index.
