The Commonwealth of Southalvia is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its unlimited-speed roads and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 333 million Southalvians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 22.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Southalvian economy, worth 16.8 trillion Southalvian Dollars a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,567 Southalvian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One does not simply walk into the tundra, news headlines usually include p-values, fiscal policy hawks decry the sizable "panem et circenses" fund added to the public budget, and it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southalvia's national animal is the Southalvian Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Southalvia is ranked 156,763rd in the world and 5,451st in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.28 Weapons Per Person.
