The Nomadic Peoples of Scouria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Elder Cedric Pearson with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, public floggings, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.061 billion Scourians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zarathan Prime. The average income tax rate is 64.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Scourian economy, worth 106 trillion Embers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,761 Embers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals are put to death while cuddling their favourite teddy bear, the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, adverts depict men giving birth while cursing the women who got them into trouble, and movie producers send film critics wads of cash in their morning newspapers in anticipation of gushing praise. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scouria's national animal is the Svörngak, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of the Angel of Combustion.

Scouria is ranked 14,591st in the world and 814th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 80.11 Years.
