The Unholy Red Socialissimo of The South Falls is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister August Johnson with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.987 billion South Fallsians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fallsatia. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient South Fallsian economy, worth 589 trillion South Fallsian Dollars 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 147,976 South Fallsian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation, artists are pillars of society, ad-blocking has been nationalised, and it's surprisingly hard to find pictures of the bad haircuts from Prime Minister August Johnson's childhood. Crime is totally unknown. The South Falls's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The South Falls is ranked 43,012th in the world and 2,165th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,438.03 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
