The Armed Republic of Scalesburg is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Rodney Osborne with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.823 billion Scalesburgians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Montclair. The average income tax rate is 76.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Scalesburgian economy, worth 411 trillion k-bucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 225,454 k-bucks, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government is pouring funds into the nation's welfare system, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, and modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes. Crime is relatively low. Scalesburg's national animal is the wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Scalesburg is ranked 66,819th in the world and 19th in Novus Lucidum for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 60.51 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
