The Democratic Republic of Alscotia is a huge, genial nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 959 million Alscotians 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.
The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baile Mòr. The average income tax rate is 76.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Alscotian economy, worth 78.1 trillion pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,400 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, much of Alscotia's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape, and the national anthem is a rather effective sleeping aid. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alscotia's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
