The Imperial Dictatorship of New Scorpio is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Jacob Varsil with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.742 billion Scorpions are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antonia. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.
The frighteningly efficient New Scorpioan economy, worth a remarkable 1,077 trillion Vens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 139,149 Vens, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.
Electrocution deaths among computer technicians are at an all-time high, every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, and naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Scorpio's national animal is the Scorpion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Scorpius.
