The Nomadic Peoples of Scouria is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 641 million Scourians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zarathan Prime. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Scourian economy, worth 56.9 trillion Embers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,707 Embers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Supermarkets must refund spoilt milk even six months after the sale, cheese has been labelled a dangerous weapon and banned, religious education is a new government priority, and the government is telling wizards to put their heart into their work. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scouria's national animal is the Svörngak, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
