The Kingdom of South Blossom is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Mateus with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.678 billion South Blossomians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient South Blossomian economy, worth 210 trillion Bernie Bucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 125,604 Bernie Bucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, pro-democracy regime change has been avoided, and residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Blossom's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

South Blossom is ranked 170,855th in the world and 6,379th in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 8.12 Obesity Rate.
