Scorpio Spikal

Population1.986 billion

CapitalSunshine Valley
LeaderJerald Harlan


The Federation of Scorpio Spikal is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Jerald Harlan with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.986 billion Feds hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunshine Valley. The average income tax rate is 37.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Federal economy, worth 166 trillion Sporebucks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 83,855 Sporebucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has nearly as many history museums as Feds, Jerald Harlan can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees, sex changes are routinely performed at Scorpio Spikal's hospitals, and bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Scorpio Spikal's national animal is the Nevinte, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secular.

Scorpio Spikal is ranked 67,281st in the world and 2,159th in Balder for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,367.69 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
