The Armed Republic of Scourbasth is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, zero percent divorce rate, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 999 million Scourbasthians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rorschach. The average income tax rate is 23.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Scourbasthian economy, worth 78.7 trillion social credits a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is 78,791 social credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, the government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, and politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scourbasth's national animal is the feral Human, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Scourbasth is ranked 25,466th in the world and 1,093rd in Balder for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 5,239.97 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
