The Confederacy of The Secessionist States of Americana is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by His Excellency Robert Lee with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.38 billion Southerners are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Richmond. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Southern economy, worth 845 trillion Confederate Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 250,051 Confederate Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

Parents are always up to speed on the latest childcare techniques, Southern junkies argue that poppy stalks are ornamental flowers, the nation is wading into dangerous waters, and saying "don't do anything that His Excellency Robert Lee wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Secessionist States of Americana's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Roman Catholic.

The Secessionist States of Americana is ranked 130,259th in the world and 10th in Dixie for Most Extreme, scoring 16.23 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
