The Confederacy of Scrubbertalia is a huge, safe nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 342 million Scrubbertalians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Scrubbertalian economy, worth 26.2 trillion guilders 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 76,595 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scrubbertalia's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scrubbertalia is ranked 113,674th in the world and 5,730th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -2.9 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
