The Rogue Nation of Scquantania is a large, orderly nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical population of 74 million Scquantanians 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 enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Scquantanian economy, worth 2.13 trillion Scquantanian Erqas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 28,799 Scquantanian Erqas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery, kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles, Monkeys are considered a delicacy, and Harry Potter books are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scquantania's national animal is the Monkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Scquantania is ranked 148,185th in the world and 6,032nd in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 9 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
