The Control Group of The Southeast Earth is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Collective with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, strictly enforced bedtime, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.878 billion Southeast Earthians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karsenionas. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Southeast Earthian economy, worth 763 trillion defarons a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 265,444 defarons, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Billions of defarons are being blown on orbital weapons development, children are expected to carve their own toys, sweet-toothed Southeast Earthians have been left penniless by the VAT on candy, and patriotic parents remind their children to drink plenty of water. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Southeast Earth's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is State Atheism.

The Southeast Earth is ranked 134,319th in the world and 128th in The Union of Democratic States for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 919.26 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
