The Oop of Scottiesland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Archbishop Henrich I von Scottiesland with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 5.67 billion Scottieslanders 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Minnuk. The average income tax rate is 60.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Scottieslandian economy, worth 427 trillion Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,450 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pregnant hitchhikers with signs requesting rides to "competent care" are a common sight on Scottieslandian roads, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, and criminals are thrown to the Zombies to repay their debt to society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scottiesland's national animal is the Zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Scottiesland is ranked 19,791st in the world and 4th in Kuhlbach for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 11.3 Bank.
