The Parasite infested feathers of Scabby Pigeon is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its enslaved workforce, aversion to nipples, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.679 billion Scabby Pigeons are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59.7%.

The powerhouse Scabby economy, worth 232 trillion crusts a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 63,224 crusts, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 times as much as the poorest.

Demand for gourmet white truffles is on the rise, Leader's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, children listen incredulously when their grandparents explain what a "running river" is, and posing for pictures is an integral part of military training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scabby Pigeon's national animal is the pigeon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Scabby Pigeon is ranked 138,724th in the world and 20th in Iran for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -4.96 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
