The People's Republic of New Scarcia is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The cynical population of 800 million New Scarcians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central District. The average income tax rate is 71.7%.

The sizeable but inefficient New Scarcian economy, worth 32.0 trillion credits 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Average income is 39,953 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, and retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Scarcia's national animal is the seal, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

New Scarcia is ranked 119,398th in the world and 5,238th in the West Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.03 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
