The Pantisocracy of Surrus is a massive, genial nation, ruled by a hyper-intelligent tardigrade with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ban on automobiles, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.153 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 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Surrusian economy, worth 741 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 178,642 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 917th in the world and 31st in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 12,686.1 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
