The Holy Empire of Sconnapolica is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its vat-grown people, triple-decker prams, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.396 billion Sconnapolicans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sconnapolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Sconnapolican economy, worth 197 trillion Gromblas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 141,638 Gromblas, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 877,370 per year while the poor average 9,865, a ratio of 88.9 to 1.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, Leader is the self-declared God of all Sconnapolica, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, and cheese lovers have a case of the bleus. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sconnapolica's national animal is the Bearded dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Sconnapolica is ranked 176,883rd in the world and 57th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 532.13 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
