The Surge Empire

The Confederacy of The Surge Empire is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Lord Richard of House Gray with an even hand, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 5.009 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 44.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Surgish economy, worth 735 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 146,747 Bolts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Hell is not always other people, public parks are littered with cigarette butts, it isn't only obsequious grandees who produce a lot of manure at state occasions, and hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms. 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 236,028th in the world and 7,837th in Osiris for Most Secular, with 7.38 Atheism Rate.
