The Commonwealth of Scorchlight is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 105 million Scorchlightians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The imploded Scorchlightian economy, worth 661 billion dogecoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Book Publishing. Average income is 6,295 dogecoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scorchlight's national animal is the bonobo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scorchlight is ranked 94,761st in the world and 4,813th in The North Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 463.64 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
