Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Globex Central Corporation of Scanlon Industries is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hank Scorpio with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.38 billion Scanlon Industriesians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kahlenberg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Scanlon Industriesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,421 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 136,952 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 396,627 per year while the poor average 37,474, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

Morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, the government is avowedly atheist, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, and manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scanlon Industries's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Undefined.

Scanlon Industries is ranked 3,693rd in Lazarus and 111,477th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -599 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
