The Republic of Scartap is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Me with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.512 billion Scartapians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dnert. The average income tax rate is 20.2%.

The all-consuming Scartapian economy, worth 176 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 116,547 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, for some reason the census focuses on daily banana ingestion and hourly quip rate, soldiers stream their classified military operations live for millions of fans, and the "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Scartap's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Quandale Dingle.

Scartap is ranked 35,432nd in the world and 316th in The Communist Bloc for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.53 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
