The Grand Texan Kingdom of Scotsgale is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Dwight IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.342 billion Texans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heilige Schwerin. The average income tax rate is 65.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Scotsgalean economy, worth 146 trillion Yoakams a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 108,854 Yoakams, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Community theaters are known for their bawdy renditions of 'Springtime for King Dwight IV', school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, and lonely people are supposed to be cheered up by the many parties that they are never invited to. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scotsgale's national animal is the Texas Longhorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dwightism.

Scotsgale is ranked 255,107th in the world and 9th in Chesapeake for Fattest Citizens, with 8 Obesity Rate.
