The Republic of Scaven is a massive, safe nation, ruled by General Camper with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The devout population of 3.921 billion Scavengers 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Bonifacio. The average income tax rate is 55.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Scavenian economy, worth 386 trillion Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,572 Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, cooking with water and baking soda is considered patent infringement, and children as young as eight can present logical proofs for the existence of the afterlife. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scaven's national animal is the Vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Scaven is ranked 183,941st in the world and 6,496th in Balder for Most Extreme, scoring 6.45 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
