The Kingdom of Scarriaa is a huge, safe nation, ruled by King Scar with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 898 million Scarriaans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Scarriaan economy, worth 34.3 trillion Arias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 38,216 Arias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government violently suppresses separatist movements, the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, citizens select which government department gets their income tax Arias each year, and a valid legal defense is 'dead men tell no tales'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scarriaa's national animal is the Brown Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
