The Empire of Surtlend is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Olufemi Magoro with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, prohibition of alcohol, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.384 billion Surtlendians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Doboj. The average income tax rate is 62.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Surtlendian economy, worth 131 trillion rubles 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 black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. 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 38,723 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits, and the Hanging Gardens account for half of Doboj's water use. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Surtlend's national animal is the porpoise, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Kemetism.

Surtlend is ranked 207,668th in the world and 261st in Oneid for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 49,588 Standard Monetary Units.
