The Federal Republic of Surroosia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kertanegra Barrameda with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 1.187 billion Surroosians 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 Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Essogosia. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Surroosian economy, worth 141 trillion Rutiis a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,334 Rutiis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political speeches that drill deep into bureaucratic fine detail could be said to be a little boring, the nation takes the world's poor and tired and the huddled Masses yearning to breathe free, high school bands practice by moonlight, and wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Surroosia's national animal is the Garuda, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Anticrab.

Surroosia is ranked 35,647th in the world and 1,094th in the West Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,442.17 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
