The Queen's State of Souris Hill is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 17.24 billion Souris Hillians 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, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Public Transport are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.6%.
The very strong Souris Hillian economy, worth 601 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 34,888 betales, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.
Euthanasia is legal, the government is avowedly atheist, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked. Crime is a problem. Souris Hill's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
