The Republic of Scalizagasti is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sarah Millard with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed population of 3.564 billion Scalizagastians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bewundal. The average income tax rate is 46.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Scalizagastian economy, worth 461 trillion scalizzes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,556 scalizzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Private law firms are unheard of, convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail, Wolf sanctuaries have been taken over by hydraulic fracturing sites, and the government maintains a Department of Skulduggery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scalizagasti's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scalizagasti is ranked 15,137th in the world and 9th in The Great Experiment for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 69,572 Standard Monetary Units.
