Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Pantisocracy of Surrus is a massive, genial nation, ruled by a hyper-intelligent tardigrade with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.469 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 623 trillion labor hours a year, is quite 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 179,723 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 150,717th in the world and 7,518th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -30.46 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
