The Confederacy of The Surge Empire is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lord Richard of House Gray with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 2.074 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 46.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Surgish economy, worth 289 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 139,749 Bolts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, many suspect the government "doth protest too much" with their curiously specific denials of conspiracy theories, and the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda. 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 83,516th in the world and 10th in Imperia Mundi for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 961.68 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
