The Anime 95X Express Bus of Scottfire is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Amanda Scott IV with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 27.674 billion subjects 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Healthcare and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amanda Scott's Palace. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The very strong Scottfirean economy, worth a remarkable 7,279 trillion potato chips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 263,061 potato chips, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A new "thought police" branch is being developed, birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Scottfire, and citizens who don't attend the nation's massive military parades tend to disappear overnight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Scottfire's national animal is the feathered porcupine, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Scottism.

Scottfire is ranked 3,609th in the world and 12th in The Black Hawks for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 7,193.76 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
