The Avant-Gardist States of Surrealist Patagonia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Le Patron Konrad Svoboda with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 2.983 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Puerto Soleil. The average income tax rate is 59.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Futurist economy, worth 199 trillion Schlattcoins 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Retail, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 66,771 Schlattcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

New urban roads are threatening city parks, skateparks can be found in every city, it is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers, and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 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 214,351st in the world and 10th in The Union of Egoists for Lowest Crime Rates, with 50.24 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
