The Imperial Dictatorship of New Scorpio is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Lord Jacob Varsil with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.885 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 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Children spout "There is no right or wrong, merely different veiwpoints" involuntarily throughout the day, cheating spouses are required to undergo job training, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, and government popup ads are springing up like weeds. 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 3rd in Talos and 8,148th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 58.4 Insults Per Minute (net).
