The Constitutional Kingdom of Surksaka is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by John Arthur Wellington with an even hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, triple-decker prams, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate population of 854 million Nordicans 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Healthcare, with Administration, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Gordon. The average income tax rate is 23.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Surksakan economy, worth 46.9 trillion Nordic Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Gambling, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 54,897 Nordic Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

John Arthur Wellington has just been declared ruler of Surksaka in an international press conference, power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, you need a signed affidavit from a registered psychiatrist to claim that you have crazy low prices, and the revelation that people were sexist in the past is apparently front page news. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Surksaka's national animal is the Springbok, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Surksaka is ranked 33,366th in the world and 1st in The Nordic Pact for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,173.94 Tourists Per Hour.
