The Kingdom of Suiram is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Marius Helgerud with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 6.476 billion Suiramians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dovahburg. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Suiramian economy, worth a remarkable 1,919 trillion crowns a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 296,387 crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Marius Helgerud always arrives fashionably late and smelling of mushrooms, stores employing more than 100 employees are required to be at least twenty miles from any competitor, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Suiram's national animal is the duck, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Suiram is ranked 244,743rd in the world and 5,943rd in the Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -902.43 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
