The Queendom of Southern Giraffe Islands is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 393 million Giraffians 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, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Environment, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bikini City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Southern Giraffe Islandsian economy, worth 45.7 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 116,267 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.6 times as much as the poorest.

The Forestry Department has decided you really can't fight fire with fire, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, the most popular stadium acts are one-off performances, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. Southern Giraffe Islands's national animal is the giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Southern Giraffe Islands is ranked 118,722nd in the world and 5,716th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 37.85 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
