The Empire of Scaletta is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Vito Scaletta with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.382 billion Scalettans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Empire Bay. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Scalettan economy, worth 876 trillion SE Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,790 SE Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Grandiose stage parents insist superyachts and private cinemas are children's basic needs, pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, and small shoes often wash up on the beach. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scaletta's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
