Population698 million


The Confederacy of Scrubbertalia is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 698 million Scrubbertalians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 86.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Scrubbertalian economy, worth 72.2 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 103,391 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, daring to agree with another politician is grounds for instant dismissal, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, and Scrubbertalians have recently stopped mysteriously setting off metal detectors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scrubbertalia's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scrubbertalia is ranked 3,194th in the world and 868th in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 20,511 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
