Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Doohanity of Scottrick is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 29.429 billion Scottrickians 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 medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Welfare, Social Policy, and Environment are also considered important, while Defense and Law & Order aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Scottrickian economy, worth a remarkable 8,915 trillion robonians a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an amazing 302,939 robonians, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, unemployed judges can be found squatting in abandoned courthouses, animal control is going door-to-door releasing all pets back into the wild, and school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Scottrick's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scottrick is ranked 133,060th in the world and 1st in The Monastery for Most Authoritarian, with 0.01 Stalins.
