The Dictatorship of Surajtopia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Evil Overlord Suraj with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, ritual sacrifices, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.528 billion Surajtopians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Suraj City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.6%.

The large but inefficient Surajtopian economy, worth 688 trillion Surajs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 72,280 Surajs, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Suraj City make great practice for foreign snipers, Surajtopians have replaced bears in a popular idiom, ghost regiments exist only on paper, and foreign governments regularly accuse the Surajtopian military of war crimes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Surajtopia's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Surajism.

Surajtopia is ranked 222,255th in the world and 5th in The Archipelago of Enlightened States for Most Politically Free, scoring 10 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
