Scott Ards

The United Socialist States of Scott Ards is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its fear of technology, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 323 million Scott Ardsians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 63.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Scott Ardsian economy, worth 17.7 trillion Scott Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 54,776 Scott Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

9 out of 10 consumers think that vitamins can cure cancer, all recreational drugs are legal, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, and fans doing the wave routinely disrupt the finals of Go tournaments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scott Ards's national animal is the Blue Jay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Scott Ards is ranked 210,673rd in the world and 8,942nd in the Rejected Realms for Fattest Citizens, with 9.48 Obesity Rate.
