The Borderlands of South Alderton is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 369 million South Aldertonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 52.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong South Aldertonian economy, worth 25.1 trillion Rhodium Quarters a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is 68,068 Rhodium Quarters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Document forgery is a critical skill for would-be politicians, the government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second, and there's no such thing as bad publicity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Alderton's national animal is the Aldertonian Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

South Alderton is ranked 31,737th in the world and 6th in The Union of Rightwing Nations for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,081.03 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
