The Commonwealth of Scacchetti is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Da Boss with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.822 billion Paisanos have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rigatopia. The average income tax rate is 36.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Paisan economy, worth 231 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 127,161 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

If foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to Scacchetti, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions, and prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scacchetti's national animal is the Hippopotamus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scacchetti is ranked 11,632nd in the world and 359th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 84.44 on the Human Development Index.
