The Enlightened Principality of Southern Sulter is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its digital currency, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 597 million Southern Sulterians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nordenia. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Southern Sulterian economy, worth 63.3 trillion Wyvern scales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,010 Wyvern scales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Charged suspects often have to wait years before the courts have room to judge their trial, endocrinology is a rapidly growing field of study, aging citizens are celebrating the end of the 'Early Bird War', and government solves problems by tossing money at the nearest geek. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern Sulter's national animal is the Wyvern, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Southern Sulter is ranked 14,479th in the world and 10th in Kantrias for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5,678.37 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
