The United American States of South Artheria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Governor Bren with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.876 billion Citizens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chicago. The average income tax rate is 27.9%.

The powerhouse South Artherian economy, worth 446 trillion Creds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 91,618 Creds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials go door-to-door educating about the dangers of pseudoscience, adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears, the military perceives nations hit by natural disasters as "easy pickings", and most ambassadors from South Artheria retire only a few years after being appointed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Artheria's national animal is the American, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Artherian Christianity.

South Artheria is ranked 17,263rd in the world and 1st in Hearts of Steel for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,784.39 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
