The Free Land of Southern Ryland is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.052 billion Southern Rylandians 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 Education, Healthcare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 34.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong Southern Rylandian economy, worth 63.9 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 60,785 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
The entire entry for Southern Ryland in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, and city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern Ryland's national animal is the Pygmy Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
