The Commonwealth of South World is a massive, safe nation, ruled by First Citizen with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 3.754 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Red Wolf City. The average income tax rate is 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient South Worldian economy, worth 547 trillion Golden Eagles a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,774 Golden Eagles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Angry citizens complain that there isn't enough geographical diversity on the new banknotes, orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, there is a law against "filthy foreign food", and they say that South Worldians made a dessert and called it peace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 202,235th in the world and 51st in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Most Avoided, scoring 0.38 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
