The Doohanity of Scottrick is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, surprisingly youthful workforce, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 23.983 billion Scottrickians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Education, with Social Policy and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. The average income tax rate is 49.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scottrickian economy, worth a remarkable 6,614 trillion robonians a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 275,796 robonians, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Even the most lowly council pen-pusher has the same political power as a senior minister, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Scottrick's radio stations, citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Scottrick's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scottrick is ranked 2nd in The Monastery and 115,084th in the world for Most Devout, scoring -1,082 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
