The Pantisocracy of Surrus is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by a hyper-intelligent tardigrade with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.578 billion Surrücktes enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Surrogate. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Surrusian economy, worth 820 trillion labor hours a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 179,122 labor hours, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The monarchy has adopted absolute primogeniture, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, the government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Surrücktes. Crime is totally unknown. Surrus's national animal is the corkscrew-tailed tardigrade, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Surrus is ranked 2,941st in the world and 137th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 134.88 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
