The United Families of Scalewhite is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Phronimos III with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, zero percent divorce rate, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 6.173 billion Scalewhiteans 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scalewhite Main. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Scalewhitean economy, worth a remarkable 1,598 trillion Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 258,879 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only persecuted professionals need apply, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, and the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scalewhite's national animal is the Ferret, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestant Christianity.

Scalewhite is ranked 585th in the world and 6th in Right to Life for Most Devout, with 13,043.43 Prayers Per Hour.
