The Kingdom of Scorvkent is a very large, genial nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 177 million Scorvkentians 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 large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 55.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Scorvkentian economy, worth 4.89 trillion vahts 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 dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 27,600 vahts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, hazmat suits are a common Scorvkentian garb, and the children of Scorvkent are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scorvkent's national animal is the citizen opinionated on environmentalism.

Scorvkent is ranked 156,612th in the world and 5,141st in Lazarus for Most Stationary, with 9.90070199688 Days.
