The Rogue Nation of Sco Mix Hald is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, lack of airports, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 812 million Haldians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Falcon City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.3%.

The Sco Mix Haldian economy, worth 68.9 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 84,836 florins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 284,794 per year while the poor average 18,752, a ratio of 15.2 to 1.

The might of the entire Sco Mix Haldian Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders, children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, doctors with dyed hair inform patients via video-link that they must not go against nature, and the deceased are buried mostly to hide them from state-sanctioned corpse-collectors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sco Mix Hald's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sco Mix Hald is ranked 7,456th in the world and 11th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Avoided, scoring 157.94 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
