The Southern Scotian Isles

Population364 million

CapitalNew Glasburgh


The United Socialist States of The Southern Scotian Isles is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 364 million Southern Scotian Islesians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Glasburgh. The average income tax rate is 59.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Southern Scotian Islesian economy, worth 19.4 trillion Scots a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 53,337 Scots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Billions of Scots are being poured into a space program, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, the government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, and 'Leopardnado 6: You Gotta Be Kidding Me' is this summer's top-grossing movie. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Southern Scotian Isles's national animal is the Leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Southern Scotian Isles is ranked 184,201st in the world and 16th in Marxia for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.24 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
