The Federal Republic of Surroosia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kertanegra Barrameda with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 956 million Surroosians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Essogosia. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Surroosian economy, worth 113 trillion Rutiis a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,667 Rutiis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tie-dye has been outlawed for being 'too occult', the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Surroosia's national animal is the Garuda, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Surroosia is ranked 26,933rd in the world and 1,000th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 5,413.58 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
