Scawtland Republic

Population4.431 billion

The Independent States of Scawtland Republic is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-working, cynical population of 4.431 billion Scawts are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inverness. The average income tax rate is 37.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Scawtland Republician economy, worth 226 trillion Indyrefs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 51,047 Indyrefs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scawtland Republic's national animal is the Highland Unicorn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Scawtland Republic is ranked 130,620th in the world and 224th in The Western Isles for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 35.07 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
