The Globex Central Corporation of Scanlon Industries is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Hank Scorpio with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.709 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kahlenberg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

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 the all-pervasive 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, its national religion is Undefined, and its currency is the Dollar.

Scanlon Industries is ranked 12th in Realm of Dragons and 104,343rd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -14 on the Hayek Index.
