The Confederate States of The South-Land is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Atticus J Howard with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, flagrant waste-dumping, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 3.417 billion Southerners are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nashville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.

The powerhouse Confederate economy, worth 466 trillion Confederate Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 136,398 Confederate Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 573,904 per year while the poor average 21,036, a ratio of 27.3 to 1.

Colonials are offended to find a local animal has been re-named the 'Furry Four-Legged Marsupial Great Horned Owl', artificial intelligences seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, and the homeless more often beg for mercy than money. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The South-Land's national animal is the Great Horned Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Protestant Christianity.

The South-Land is ranked 147,861st in the world and 4th in Imperial Coalition of Nations for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3.95 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
