The Confederacy of The Surge Empire is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lord Richard of House Gray with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.562 billion Surges have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 43.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Surgish economy, worth 519 trillion Bolts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 145,800 Bolts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The new one Bolt coin also makes a handy throwing-star, a ravana Tourist Association survey has rated The Surge Empire #1 for number twos, Imperial City's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, and battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Surge Empire's national animal is the Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Norse.

The Surge Empire is ranked 193,291st in the world and 84th in ravana for Most Primitive, scoring -305.83 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
