The United Commonwealths of Scytharum is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Nicholas Langston with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.96 billion Scythaics are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Healthcare, Defense, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aureus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Scythaic economy, worth 290 trillion Aurums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 148,388 Aurums, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 543,460 per year while the poor average 28,709, a ratio of 18.9 to 1.

Teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, and children searching for cat videos must watch dogs in equal proportion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Scytharum's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scytharum is ranked 78,261st in the world and 739th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,125.15 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
