The Räterepublik of Surrealist Patagonia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Le Patron Konrad Svoboda with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.283 billion Futurists 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 Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Puerto Soleil. The average income tax rate is 55.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Futurist economy, worth 53.5 trillion Barters 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 black market in Retail, Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Gambling. 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 41,718 Barters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, racial and religious segregation has become rife as the various groups are loath to mingle, ministers are now allowed to put suggestions in the governmental suggestion box, and Esoteric Occultism has been named as Surrealist Patagonia's national religion. Crime is relatively low. Surrealist Patagonia's national animal is the Culpeo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Esoteric Occultism.

Surrealist Patagonia is ranked 180,678th in the world and 5th in The Union of Egoists for Most Pro-Market, scoring -76.71 on the Rand Index.
