The Southern Republic of Glorious Society is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President Daniel Ryan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, free-roaming dinosaurs, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.08 billion Caucasians 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, 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 Arkwell. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Glorious Societyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,525 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 373,802 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

People who have lived their entire lives in Glorious Society are shocked to discover that they are not citizens, Glorious Societyian tourists are banned from many nations due to their tendency to randomly explode, marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, and prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glorious Society's national animal is the Black Maine Coon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Angelism.

Glorious Society is ranked 140,051st in the world and 5,214th in Lazarus for Most Pro-Market, scoring 33.44 on the Rand Index.
