The Republic of Souterrak is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 3.415 billion Souterrakians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Souterrakian economy, worth 386 trillion Rakens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 113,199 Rakens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, the red star of communism has been replaced by the gold star of the McRonald's badge, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, and the recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter. Crime is totally unknown. Souterrak's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Souterrak is ranked 151,628th in the world and 4,613th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -7.07 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
