The Most Serene Republic of Scar Island is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 232 million Unknowns have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 22.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Unknown economy, worth 13.5 trillion Scars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,333 Scars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes, Scar Island City spends billions upgrading public transport, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, and it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scar Island's national animal is the Unknown, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Scar Island is ranked 136,033rd in the world and 7,027th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -6.32 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
