The Kingdom of Scaiji is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Ainéislis with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, ubiquitous missile silos, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.305 billion Scaijiks are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kohtjandir. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Scaijik economy, worth 100 trillion Fryvkels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is 77,001 Fryvkels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A positive pregnancy test doubles as a visa, minstrels carrying coconut shells provide sound effects wherever their nobles wander, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, and Fenrikism has been named as Scaiji's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scaiji's national animal is the Scaijik Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fenrikism.

Scaiji is ranked 58,736th in the world and 129th in Wintreath for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,230.37 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
