The Commonwealth of Scacchetti is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Da Boss with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working population of 3.777 billion Paisanos enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rigatopia. The average income tax rate is 53.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Paisan economy, worth 485 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 128,526 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

At least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Da Boss's wardrobe, tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, and beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings. 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 160,144th in the world and 6,386th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -2.9 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
