The Commonwealth of South World is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by First Citizen with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.936 billion South Worldians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Red Wolf City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.2%.

The frighteningly efficient South Worldian economy, worth 258 trillion Golden Eagles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 133,398 Golden Eagles, with the richest citizens earning 9.2 times as much as the poorest.

A newly discovered small mammal's name translates into South Worldian as 'your finger, you fool', plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South World's national animal is the Red Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Old-time Christianity.

South World is ranked 89,487th in the world and 33rd in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
