The Confederacy of The Surge Empire is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 687 million Surge Imperians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Surge Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 24.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Surge Imperians economy, worth 75.9 trillion Bolts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 110,526 Bolts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Surge Empire's national animal is the Owl.

The Surge Empire is ranked 127,988th in the world and 10th in Imperia Mundi for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 477.66 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
