The Kingdom of Southern Bladekeep is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and compulsory military service. The democratic, devout population of 4.091 billion Southern Bladekeepians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 39.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Southern Bladekeepian economy, worth 164 trillion Silver Royales a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 40,256 Silver Royales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, bicyclists are banned from major roads, gambling is outlawed, and college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern Bladekeep's national animal is the Royal Quail, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Southern Bladekeep is ranked 65,651st in the world and 50th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Highest Poor Incomes, with 30,617.61 Standard Monetary Units.
