The Second Dixie Republic of United Confederate States is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Daniel Carson with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, public floggings, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.462 billion Americans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Richmond. The average income tax rate is 48.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Confederate economy, worth 412 trillion Confederate States Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,197 Confederate States Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise, the most commonly-worn shoes are concrete ones, Americans believe a soft answer turneth away wrath but punitive punishment is much more fun, and visitors to United Confederate States are microchipped and must be escorted by a Confederate soldier - even to the bathroom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Confederate States's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Protestantism.

United Confederate States is ranked 24,299th in the world and 1,310th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 859.24 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
