The United Socialist States of South Guandyar is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical population of 188 million South Guandyarians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The imploded South Guandyarian economy, worth 951 billion Guandollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is 5,062 Guandollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Large-girthed charity workers assign themselves healthy wages for their work with starving children, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around South Guandyar City, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Guandyar's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

South Guandyar is ranked 190,768th in the world and 5,290th in the West Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -26.78 on the Hayek Index.
