The Solstice States of Down Scoblic is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Satu Kohaku with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.09 billion Scoblese have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gibraltar Santiago. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scoblese economy, worth 172 trillion Solar Fraegenis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 158,614 Solar Fraegenis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, foreign workers are flooding in as Solar Fraegenis flood out, concussed Martenball players cannot remember their lineup position, and school children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Down Scoblic's national animal is the Marten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mistrozen.

Down Scoblic is ranked 35,769th in the world and 1,535th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 69.97 Effective Tax Rate.
