The Empire of Scaletta is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Vito Scaletta with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.605 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 62.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Scalettan economy, worth 463 trillion SE Credits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,659 SE Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tabloids coo over Vito Scaletta's expected child, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, and the government snoops on private internet connections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 196,125th in the world and 488th in Europeia for Fattest Citizens, with 8.2 Obesity Rate.
