The United Socialist States of Scoye is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ivan Trotsky with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.559 billion Scoyeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gloria. The average income tax rate is 50.1%.

The strong Scoyean economy, worth 70.9 trillion satoshis a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 45,446 satoshis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, international tensions are high as Scoye threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were, and election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scoye's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Scoye is ranked 134,397th in the world and 20th in The Shadow League for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 62.95 Workforce Participation Rate.
