The Kingdom of Scarriaa is a huge, safe nation, ruled by King Scar with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 891 million Scarriaans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Scarriaan economy, worth 33.5 trillion Arias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 37,604 Arias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dining out often involves Brown Lions on the plate no matter what you order, government employees have reverted to carrier pigeon due to never-ending virus scans, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and King Scar has just been declared ruler of Scarriaa in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scarriaa's national animal is the Brown Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Scarriaa is ranked 156,828th in the world and 13th in The Allied Nations for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.49 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
