The BS Detector of October Surprise is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 38.94 billion October Surpriseans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Social Policy, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 56.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant October Surprisean economy, worth 105 trillion whoas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 2,709 whoas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. October Surprise's national animal is the rabbit.

October Surprise is ranked 255,687th in the world and 67th in United States for Highest Poor Incomes, with 2,709.15 Standard Monetary Units.
