The Kingdom of Southbatten is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.307 billion Southbattenians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ADT Quentin. The average income tax rate is 25.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Southbattenian economy, worth 76.5 trillion Lyres a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 58,493 Lyres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, young girls often attend the same schools as their children, the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, and no one is worried about government policies any more. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southbatten's national animal is the Lion, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Southbatten is ranked 26,049th in the world and 3rd in Of Books and Stories for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 7.75 Bank.
