|Leader||Matthew the Great|
|Faith||Cult of Matthew|
The Republic of Scationtanland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Matthew the Great with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, fear of technology, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.018 billion Scationtanlandians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Clarkesville. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Scationtanlandian economy, worth 134 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 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 132,220 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Aeroplanes have been converted into housing units after all air travel was outlawed, Matthew the Great is the self-declared God of all Scationtanland, people forget to eat because they are too busy singing Matthew the Great's praises, and knitters are arrested for carrying needles in their bags. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scationtanland's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Cult of Matthew.
