The Republic of Scationtanland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Matthew the Great with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, zero percent divorce rate, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 1.22 billion Scationtanlandians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Clarkesville. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Scationtanlandian economy, worth 145 trillion pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Tourism, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 118,923 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The act of reporting blasphemy is known as 'Orthodoxxing', the new intercity submarine SSN Turtle Warrior instills terror in claustrophobic travellers, citizens re-mortgage their homes to buy lottery tickets, and tie-dye has been outlawed for being 'too occult'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Scationtanland's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Cult of Matthew.

Scationtanland is ranked 201,220th in the world and 5,741st in the West Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 30.94 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
