The Confederacy of Ary Scales is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, ritual sacrifices, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 251 million Ary Scalesians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Welfare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.1%.

The very strong Ary Scalesian economy, worth 16.6 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 66,093 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 211,057 per year while the poor average 15,728, a ratio of 13.4 to 1.

Citizens have never heard foreign radio, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, people spend a lot on hair and nails, and the Ary Scales Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ary Scales's national animal is the emu.

Ary Scales is ranked 70,174th in the world and 2,001st in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 59.99 on the Human Development Index.
