The United Socialist States of Suedalemannia is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 170 million Suedalemannians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Suedalemannian economy, worth 9.52 trillion Alemannische Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 56,017 Alemannische Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A recent "genocide prevention" campaign includes murdering children based on their DNA, a small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went, Suedalemannians submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, and the revelation that people were sexist in the past is apparently front page news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Suedalemannia's national animal is the Hammer und Sichel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Suedalemannia is ranked 154,240th in the world and 32nd in Deutschland for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 17.75 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
