The Confederacy of Southern Seleyah is a huge, safe nation, ruled by President Thomas E Lee with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, enslaved workforce, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 892 million Southern Seleyahians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jamesville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.9%.

The thriving Southern Seleyahian economy, worth 75.6 trillion Southern Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 84,771 Southern Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 461,827 per year while the poor average 7,985, a ratio of 57.8 to 1.

No suburban lawn is complete without barbed wire and landmines, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem, and depression sinks in after each election when voters realize they are stuck with these people for years. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern Seleyah's national animal is the Alligator, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Southern Seleyah is ranked 167,344th in the world and 16th in Dixie for Most Extreme, scoring 12.44 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
