The Allied States of Southerous is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 133 million Southerousians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.2%.

The strong Southerousian economy, worth 8.37 trillion Toasters a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. Average income is 62,927 Toasters, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

The examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, army rations are served on silver platters, and more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southerous's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Southerous is ranked 51,537th in the world and 2,557th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 96.85 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
