The Holy Empire of Red-Black Scar is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Phillip the Great with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.936 billion Red-Black Scarians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial Capital of Red-Black Scar. The average income tax rate is 68.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Red-Black Scarian economy, worth 232 trillion Red-Black Marks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,233 Red-Black Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, the arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, moonshine has made a resurgence, and the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Red-Black Scar's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Phillipism.

Red-Black Scar is ranked 92,614th in the world and 3,654th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 674.15 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
