The Empire of Surikatia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Seyton I with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, devout population of 1.416 billion Surikats are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rio Kabina. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Surikat economy, worth 139 trillion Riksdalers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 98,711 Riksdalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', the government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, and polygamy is legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Surikatia's national animal is the Bumblebee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Surikatia is ranked 27,026th in the world and 1,563rd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.05 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
