The World Assembly Deep State of Suryak is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Julius with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, digital currency, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.748 billion Suryakese are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deep Imperia. The average income tax rate is 79.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Suryakese economy, worth 689 trillion Platinum bars 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 an amazing 250,827 Platinum bars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings, only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, the number of judges has tripled in recent months, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Suryak. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Suryak's national animal is the Gnomish Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Violetisim.

Suryak is ranked 219,262nd in the world and 434th in The Black Hawks for Nudest, with 0.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
