The Republic of Scungiors is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Auxiliary with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 872 million Scungiorsians 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, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. The average income tax rate is 86.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Scungiorsian economy, worth 71.9 trillion Miliscungs 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 82,481 Miliscungs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, all work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women, and the hardest thing for a mining operation to dig through is government red tape. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scungiors's national animal is the Hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scungiors is ranked 233,325th in the world and 3rd in amogus sus amogus impasta sus for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.69 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
