The Dominion of Scunia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Murdoch Fugler with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.407 billion Scunians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tego. The average income tax rate is 80.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Scunian economy, worth 571 trillion Tokens a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,750 Tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

The family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, the government has declared that too much democracy gets in the way of sensible leadership, and just as students finish their homework it's time for school. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scunia's national animal is the Hyena, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Scunia is ranked 218,487th in the world and 506th in The Free Nations Region for Most Secular, with 0.99 Atheism Rate.
