The Lice-ridden Feathers of Scuzzy Pigeon is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.506 billion Scuzzy Pigeons 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 government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of window ledge. The average income tax rate is 69.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Scuzzy economy, worth 539 trillion crusts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Retail, Furniture Restoration, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 82,933 crusts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Businesses are scrambling to adapt to the government's mandate that 'time and measurement no longer exist', ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, citizen radio operators agree that the certification test can open up a world of hertz, and fighter pilots crash out of the air after failing to understand their foreign instruction manuals. Crime is moderate. Scuzzy Pigeon's national animal is the louse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Scuzzy Pigeon is ranked 14,702nd in the world and 4th in Hollow Point for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,687.55 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
