The Merito-Democratic Monarchy of Suryadweep Islands is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Orion Bentley with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, state-planned economy, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.932 billion Suryadweepis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 62.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Suryadweep Islandsian economy, worth 72.4 trillion Shivrais a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 37,456 Shivrais, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Suryadweep Islands, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and those found guilty of illicit affairs are jailed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Suryadweep Islands's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
