The Democratic Kingdom of Scrogunch is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by David Longfellow with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.693 billion Scrogunchians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Squirtopia. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Scrogunchian economy, worth 507 trillion monars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 65,957 monars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scrogunch's national animal is the caracal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scrogunch is ranked 209,940th in the world and 408th in Conch Kingdom for Fattest Citizens, with 7.23 Obesity Rate.
