The Yer Maws Holiday Home of Scottish Socialists is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Right Honorable Fraser McDougall with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, zero percent divorce rate, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic, humorless population of 6.541 billion Scotsmen are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Edinburgh. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Scottish economy, worth a remarkable 1,176 trillion candy canes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 179,913 candy canes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, the nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies", and destitute athletes are forced to train in the street. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scottish Socialists's national animal is the Santa Claus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Communism.

Scottish Socialists is ranked 187,050th in the world and 126th in Wintercrest for Most Pro-Market, scoring -81.33 on the Rand Index.
