The People's Republic of Scornerse is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.935 billion Scornerseans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 34.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Scornersean economy, worth 611 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 123,935 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected, blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour, pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers, and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. Crime is totally unknown. Scornerse's national animal is the Horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Scornerse is ranked 8,716th in the world and 5th in The Strategic and Economic Alliance for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 8 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
