Scottish Socialists

Population8.246 billion

LeaderGeneral Chairman Fraser McDougall


The Yer Maws Holiday Home of Scottish Socialists is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by General Chairman Fraser McDougall with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The democratic, humorless population of 8.246 billion Scotsmen 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Edinburgh. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Scottish economy, worth a remarkable 1,480 trillion quid a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 179,581 quid, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

You're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, class clowns are frequently listed among the most dangerous criminals in the nation, fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding", and romantic sunsets are no longer interrupted by explosions and monstrous roars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scottish Socialists's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Communism.

Scottish Socialists is ranked 39,344th in the world and 18th in Wintercrest for Largest Populations, with 8.25 billion Capita.
