The People's Republic of South Rainier is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.856 billion South Rainierians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant South Rainierian economy, worth 15.2 trillion Rainien Tars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 5,305 Rainien Tars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, elections are outlawed and a hairstylist has recently received a government appointment, and small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Rainier's national animal is the Silver Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

South Rainier is ranked 224,078th in the world and 1,235th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -4.86 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
