The People's Commissariat of New Scottsville is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grand Marshal Thomas Hathoway with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 4.538 billion New Scottsvilleans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Scottsville. The average income tax rate is 75.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The New Scottsvillean economy, worth 298 trillion People's Credits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 65,774 People's Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, remote-control hang-gliding scarecrows patrol the skies to keep songbirds from leaving the nation's borders, and the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Scottsville's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is People's Fervor.

New Scottsville is ranked 26,831st in the world and 8th in Chaylia for Most Inclusive, scoring 126.62 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
