The Imperial Dictatorship of New Scorpio is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Lord Jacob Varsil with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.5 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antonia. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

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, its national religion is Scorpius, and its currency is the Ven.

New Scorpio is ranked 20th in Talos and 98,748th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -3 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
