The Empire of Scuttlemantopia is a very large, genial nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 126 million Scuttlemantopians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 20.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Scuttlemantopian economy, worth 4.29 trillion Scuttles a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 34,049 Scuttles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, and financial crimes carry severe sentences. Crime is totally unknown. Scuttlemantopia's national animal is the Scuttleman.

Scuttlemantopia is ranked 104,113th in the world and 4,190th in Balder for Lowest Crime Rates, with 61.65 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
