The Communist Republic of Soviet New Scotland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Premier Smith with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 2.329 billion are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever 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 89%, 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 "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Inverness Times is sold out, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, Max Barry is this year's Miss Soviet New Scotland, and abortions are routinely performed in Soviet New Scotland's hospitals. 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.
