The Protectorate of SouthCarolina is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, irreverence towards religion, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, cynical population of 501 million South Carolinans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Charleston. The average income tax rate is 33.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong South Carolinian economy, worth 36.5 trillion USDS a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 72,809 USDS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, volunteers are signing up to take arms against an incursion of flesh-eating zombies (SouthCarolina has found 1 easter egg), and vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SouthCarolina's national animal is the White-tailed Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

SouthCarolina is ranked 30,358th in the world and 1,347th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 900.69 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
