The Armed Republic of Scalesburg is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Rodney Osborne with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.038 billion Scalesburgians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Montclair. The average income tax rate is 77.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Scalesburgian economy, worth 525 trillion k-bucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 257,880 k-bucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

All gamers have been drafted into the military despite their lack of upper body strength, patriots insist that size does matter, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Scalesburg Blood Tithe, and the nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens. Crime is almost non-existent. Scalesburg's national animal is the wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Scalesburg is ranked 131,250th in the world and 43rd in Novus Lucidum for Most Politically Free, scoring 13.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
