The Empire of Scaletta is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Vito Scaletta with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.975 billion Scalettans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Empire Bay. The average income tax rate is 42.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Scalettan economy, worth 341 trillion SE Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,909 SE Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities, the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and postcards from Scalettan driving test centres are popular souvenirs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scaletta's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Scaletta is ranked 170,107th in the world and 739th in Europeia for Fattest Citizens, with 8.2 Obesity Rate.
