The Empire of Surikatia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Seyton I with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 1.447 billion Surikats are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rio Kabina. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Surikat economy, worth 143 trillion Riksdalers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 98,827 Riksdalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, polygamy is legal, solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, and organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Surikatia's national animal is the Bumblebee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Surikatia is ranked 42,603rd in the world and 2,550th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 51.48 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
