The Cantonese Union of The Southern Cities is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 708 million Cantonese are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hong Kong. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Cantonese economy, worth 35.0 trillion Cantonese dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 49,424 Cantonese dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

At least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Leader's wardrobe, companies flee the nation rather than pay their fair share of taxes, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, and the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Southern Cities's national animal is the Cantonese panda bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Southern Cities is ranked 120,906th in the world and 5,784th in The North Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 16,507.7 Standard Monetary Units.
