The Republic of Scalizagasti is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Sarah Millard with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 3.833 billion Scalizagastians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bewundal. The average income tax rate is 49.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Scalizagastian economy, worth 490 trillion scalizzes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 128,029 scalizzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Almost every singles' party has a clergy and courtesans theme, people who get diabetes can sue donut manufacturers, cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, and street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scalizagasti's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scalizagasti is ranked 81,885th in the world and 33rd in The Great Experiment for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 146,497 Standard Monetary Units.
