The Barely Visible Choir of Scorvkent is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate population of 996 million nuisancese are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Welfare, and Social Policy are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of That Old Ruined Arcology. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The national economy, worth 52.1 trillion vahts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 52,274 vahts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, turning the other cheek is accompanied by a polite letter of complaint, army pay is to kill and die for, and group hugs break out during floor votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Scorvkent's national animal is the citizen opposed to environmentalism, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Scorvkent is ranked 76,933rd in the world and 10th in Rain Falling In a Digital Void for Most Developed, scoring 58.18 on the Human Development Index.
