The Empire of Suriyanakhon is a massive, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The devout population of 1.153 billion Suriyanakhonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 57.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Suriyanakhonian economy, worth 30.2 trillion baht 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. 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 26,210 baht, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Truancy levels are on the rise ever since school registers were banned, bris parties are all the rage, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, and most barbers are also surgeons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Suriyanakhon's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Suriyanakhon is ranked 213,043rd in the world and 8th in The Pristine Wilderness for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 11,191.99 Standard Monetary Units.
