Scorpions Army

Population30.678 billion

CapitalThe Ark


The Holy Realm of Scorpions Army is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Imperius with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 30.678 billion Scorpions Armyians 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, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Ark. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Scorpions Armyian economy, worth a remarkable 8,962 trillion Dollars a year, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 292,160 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, and the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scorpions Army's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Scorpions Army is ranked 137th in the world and 2nd in Capitalist Paradise for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 60,650.71 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
