The Socialist Republic of Soviet New Scotland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Premier Smith with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 3.125 billion Soviet New Scotlandians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inverness. The average income tax rate is 90%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The nation has an international reputation for compassion, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, meat-eating is frowned upon, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soviet New Scotland's national animal is the Stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Roman Catholicism, and its currency is the Leninmark.
