The BS Detector of October Surprise is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 36.034 billion October Surpriseans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Social Policy, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 56.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant October Surprisean economy, worth 97.6 trillion whoas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 2,709 whoas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. October Surprise's national animal is the rabbit.

October Surprise is ranked 203,190th in the world and 70th in United States for Most Armed, with 0.2 Weapons Per Person.
