The Southern Republic of Glorious Society is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Nicholas with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.399 billion Caucasians 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkwell. The average income tax rate is 82.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Glorious Societyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,400 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 318,403 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Caucasians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, charged suspects often have to wait years before the courts have room to judge their trial, children as young as eight can present logical proofs for the existence of the afterlife, and diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glorious Society's national animal is the Black Maine Coon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of the Messiah.

Glorious Society is ranked 3,716th in the world and 168th in Lazarus for Highest Poor Incomes, with 149,080.98 Standard Monetary Units.
