The Kingdom of Surdra is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by King William VII with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 10.973 billion Surdrans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avalon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.4%.

The all-consuming Surdran economy, worth a remarkable 1,238 trillion Royal Surdran Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 112,843 Royal Surdran Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 328,636 per year while the poor average 30,637, a ratio of 10.7 to 1.

Women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, the police insist that racism does not exist, and old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Surdra's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Temple of Talos.

Surdra is ranked 43,028th in the world and 6th in Shinka for Most Corrupt Governments, with 21.61 Kickbacks Per Hour.
