15th Scottish Highlanders Division

Population1.123 billion

LeaderMajor-General Gordon MacMillan


The Rogue Military Unit of 15th Scottish Highlanders Division is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Major-General Gordon MacMillan with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.123 billion Scotsmens are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bretteville-sur-Laize. The average income tax rate is 29.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming 15th Scottish Highlanders Divisionian economy, worth 157 trillion Rations a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,257 Rations, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Bins outnumber trees in city parks, claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, and gay couples have to travel to Brancaland to find a church that will actually let them wed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 15th Scottish Highlanders Division's national animal is the Bat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Protestantism.

15th Scottish Highlanders Division is ranked 25,628th in the world and 1st in West Antartica for Most Beautiful Environments, with 870.32 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
