Regional Influence: Superpower
Location: Grey Archipelago
The Imperial Dictatorship of New Scorpio is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Jacob Shade with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed population of 6.661 billion Scorpions 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.
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 Scorpion City. The average income tax rate is 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, medical lawsuits are out of control, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, and cars are banned. 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.
