The United States of Scottra is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Nonem with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.789 billion Scottys 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Omega City. The average income tax rate is 53.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Scottran economy, worth 152 trillion Scots a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 85,364 Scots, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, and teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scottra's national animal is the Red Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scottra is ranked 23,002nd in the world and 1,094th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 80 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
