The Little Spanish Dinosaurs of Saurisa is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Dino with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless population of 5.399 billion Saurisans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Surikia. The average income tax rate is 32.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saurisan economy, worth 764 trillion wandering alpacas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,508 wandering alpacas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Father-son fishing trips have been banned, the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, throwing a sickie is a serious crime, and military officers are given medals for disobeying orders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saurisa's national animal is the the three eyed banana, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is some fancy sounding name.

Saurisa is ranked 72,379th in the world and 10th in Agora for Most Income Equality, scoring 34.84 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
