The Avant-Gardist States of Surrealist Patagonia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Le Patron Konrad Svoboda with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, vat-grown people, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed population of 2.642 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 56.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Futurist economy, worth 154 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 slick, highly efficient, 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 58,323 Schlattcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The judicial branch is strongly influenced by the Communist Party, government bureaucrats devote many man-hours to trying to measure unquantifiables, citizenship applications are processed in the time it takes to smile and say "next, please", and brains have been removed from lists of best brain foods. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Surrealist Patagonia's national animal is the Culpeo and its national religion is Esoteric Occultism.

Surrealist Patagonia is ranked 24,275th in the world and 2nd in The Union of Egoists for Largest Black Market, with 13.7 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
