The Empire of Surikatia is a massive, genial 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, democratic, devout population of 1.969 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 87.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Surikat economy, worth 196 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 99,820 Riksdalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, refugees from other nations are flocking to Surikatia's border, and cheese has become the new icon of political dissent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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 13,951st in the world and 800th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 81.95 on the Human Development Index.
