The Federated Segments of Scolopendra is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Supreme Emperor Mballa Ipolla with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 39.535 billion Scolopendrans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stonozka. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scolopendran economy, worth a remarkable 6,469 trillion alkos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 163,651 alkos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Every workday begins with group therapy, most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry, the SBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, and EpiPen sales have skyrocketed. Crime is totally unknown. Scolopendra's national animal is the centipede, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Scolopendra is ranked 235,048th in the world and 2nd in Titan for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -10.88 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
