The United States of Scrotag is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jim Hinkersburg with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 8.063 billion Scrotagians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scrotag City. The average income tax rate is 65.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Scrotagian economy, worth 266 trillion Scrotoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 33,044 Scrotoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for Scrotag, the government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency, mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, and Jim Hinkersburg has just been declared ruler of Scrotag in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown. Scrotag's national animal is the Alien, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholic.

Scrotag is ranked 10,379th in the world and 119th in the Pacific for Most Stationary, with 1,368.191138246 Days.
