The UESS of Scottish Menhad is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Voice of the People with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 26.513 billion Scottish Menhadians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magadan. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Scottish Menhadian economy, worth a remarkable 2,847 trillion Rubles a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,408 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, police officers have been re-kitted with designer uniforms and gold plated handcuffs, military spending is on the increase, and soldiers are equipped with multi-million Ruble battlesuits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scottish Menhad's national animal is the Russian Boar, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Scottish Menhad is ranked 222,454th in the world and 14th in NationStates World Regions for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.29 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
