The Kingdom of Scutum is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its closed borders, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, devout population of 14.052 billion Scutumians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scutum City. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Scutumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,279 trillion Scuts a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 91,082 Scuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The practice of capital punishment proves divisive, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scutum's national animal is the Nightygale, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
