The Oppressed Peoples of Scuffleopolis is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by A Hungry Bear with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, fear of technology, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.382 billion Scufflers are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Spirituality, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Education aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of District 1. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Scuffling economy, worth a remarkable 1,436 trillion Saltine Crackers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 266,868 Saltine Crackers, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,156,219 per year while the poor average 7,435, a ratio of 290 to 1.

Emergency services don't respond to trailer park fires, it is firmly believed that cameras steal souls, the only place where one can see the Scuffling cherry tree is in a museum, and the state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Scuffleopolis's national animal is the Potato, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is God Is Dead And The Bear Ate Him.

Scuffleopolis is ranked 1,652nd in the world and 37th in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 29,447.66 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
