The Republic of Scalizagasti is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Joanne Ergein with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.561 billion Scalizagastians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bewundal. The average income tax rate is 48.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Scalizagastian economy, worth 195 trillion scalizzes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 125,083 scalizzes, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Rumor has it that Joanne Ergein has won three lotteries in a row, Scalizagastian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, and college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scalizagasti's national animal is the wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Scalizagasti is ranked 26,237th in the world and 10th in The Great Experiment for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 270,520.83 Standard Monetary Units.
