|Leader||Matthew the Great|
|Faith||Cult of Matthew|
The Republic of Scationtanland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Matthew the Great with an iron fist, and notable for its fear of technology, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.521 billion Scationtanlandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Clarkesville. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Scationtanlandian economy, worth 183 trillion pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Tourism, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 120,966 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
No-one bats an eye when 'really good platonic friends' of the same sex hold hands in Scationtanland, the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, the state believes that children are what you make of them, and hazmat suits are a common Scationtanlandian garb. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Scationtanland's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Cult of Matthew.
