The Empire of Great Scapula is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Dher with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 11.276 billion Great Scapulans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vikaland. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient a Great Scapulan economy, worth a remarkable 1,636 trillion golds a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 145,104 golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Skateparks can be found in every city, military training in Great Scapula emphasizes the tactical advantages of stabbing backs, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, and Vikaland's iconic yellow taxis are nowhere to be seen. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Scapula's national animal is the white deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the cult to Vika.

Great Scapula is ranked 95,348th in the world and 3,892nd in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 562.04 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
