The United Socialist States of South Ourense is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Abraham Carballeira with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, public floggings, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 910 million South Ourensans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ourense. The average income tax rate is 85.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse South Ourensean economy, worth 112 trillion maravedís a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 123,091 maravedís, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government says that Possession is nine-tenths of the Lore, children often kick deer for amusement, Tetris has been banned for its graphic violent content, and oddly simian-looking religious thugs beat up anyone who suggests humans are related to monkeys. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Ourense's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

South Ourense is ranked 209,188th in the world and 185th in New Western Empire for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -10.95 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
