The Cantonese Union of The Southern Cities is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Xi Kai Sen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.841 billion Cantonese love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hong Kong. The average income tax rate is 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Cantonese economy, worth 171 trillion Cantonese dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 60,391 Cantonese dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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, and its national religion is Sino-Christianity.

The Southern Cities is ranked 77,811th in the world and 3,985th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 60,391.4 Standard Monetary Units.
