The Queen's State of Scatarie is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed population of 28.026 billion Scatarieans 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 13.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Scatariean economy, worth 877 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 31,297 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, gambling is outlawed, and X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low. Crime is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scatarie's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Scatarie is ranked 85,835th in the world and 5th in World for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,829.61 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
