The Republic of Southerly is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.901 billion Southerians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Southerly City. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Southery economy, worth a remarkable 2,271 trillion Southerly Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 255,203 Southerly Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A murderous reputation can revitalise a flagging celebrity career, parents who reward their teens' chores with concert tickets are charged with illegal reselling, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, and all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers. Crime is totally unknown. Southerly's national animal is the Toucan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Southerly is ranked 207,156th in the world and 100th in International Democratic Union for Most Avoided, scoring 0.2 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
