The Allied States of Santu Surgo is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 593 million Surgoans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nolia Lis. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Santu Surgoan economy, worth 37.6 trillion Alises a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 63,470 Alises, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers, all screens are equal but some are more equal than others, and light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Santu Surgo's national animal is the Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Santu Surgo is ranked 146,821st in the world and 56th in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Most Primitive, scoring -85.85 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
