The BS Detector of October Surprise is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 30.93 billion October Surpriseans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Public Transport, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 55.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant October Surprisean economy, worth 86.3 trillion whoas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 2,791 whoas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. October Surprise's national animal is the rabbit.

October Surprise is ranked 100,494th in the world and 46th in United States for Safest, scoring 63.11 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
