Sur Isles

Population503 million



The Federation of Sur Isles is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 503 million Sur Islesians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moro. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Sur Islesian economy, worth 47.1 trillion francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 93,634 francs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 643,133 per year while the poor average 4,875, a ratio of 131 to 1.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, you can get married in sickness and in health but not internationally, pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, and ports have ground to a halt as no boat can reach them without trespassing. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Sur Isles's national animal is the dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Sur Isles is ranked 47,527th in the world and 955th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 4,998.38 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
