The Democratic Union of The Southeast Earth is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Big Brother with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, strictly enforced bedtime, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.185 billion Southeast Earthians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, 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. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Southeast Earthian economy, worth 177 trillion defarons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 150,053 defarons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Immigrants are asked to leave their cultural traditions and pride at the border, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers, and graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation'. 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 Blue whale, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is State Atheism.

The Southeast Earth is ranked 6,098th in the world and 5th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 12,007.2 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
