Scott was starting a web site of his own, called Scottland
. It lasted for a while, then closed.
Wired Magazine 7.07 (July 1999 issue) Must read had this to say:
Scott Thompson, from Kids in the Hall and The Larry Sanders Show, stars in the first streaming video comedy series, ScottLand (www.scottland.com), premiering in July on ComedyNet. "ScottLand is a virtual world governed by my characters," he says. "The show traces the power struggle to hold the office of prime minister." Weekly episodes blur the line between stage and audience by inviting feedback from viewers, who determine the history of Thompson's weird world. Democratic, yes, but he has a nefarious motive: "I plan to quit show business and buy a little island, so I can subjugate people," he says. "ScottLand is my laboratory for learning how to become a proper dictator."

Later, close to a year later, there was a followup in 8.02 "Street Cred":
In its earlier incarnation, ScottLand was just a celeb vanity site - not much more than a link repository where comedian Scott Thompson tooted his horn. Now the Kids in the Hall graduate seems to have joined the Society for Creative Anachronism. The resulting medieval-themed playground is both a wickedly funny satire of online communities and a perfect way to prep for the Kids' current 16-city North American reunion tour.
ScottLand has enough ivy-decked pages, secret scrolls, and ornate maps to give any D&D fan a Ron Jeremy moment. According to legend, the old ScottLand was obliterated by an explosion caused by the head-on collision between a truck carrying nitrous oxide and one carrying ginseng. In its place arose a monarchy ruled by Thompson's ubiquitous alter ego - the martini-drinking chanteur Buddy Cole.
Although the site is free, access requires a login. Be prepared to choose a guild or profession: Life in ScottLand demands hierarchy, and you must define your rank - say, a perky Troubadour or a sullen, shit-encrusted Night Soil Collector. Want to make a friend? Chat away in the OvalSquare. As in most such cyberspace locales, don't count on discussing Sartre. Low-ranking Footmen and high-ranking Fishmongers seem to find common ground in such queries as "How old are you?"
While ScottLand gets bogged down at times in the weight of its own joke, it seems to do so by design. Its tropes exaggerate the tired constructions of MUDs, MOOs, role-playing games, and online graphical worlds, much as Thompson's Francesca Fiori bit brings out the affectations of Eurotrash. The delusional world of online existence becomes far more habitable after a dose of this Kid's absurdist wit.

Sometime in 1999, he made an appearance on one of the last episodes of the Tom Green Show, burning a Canadian Flag.
Nowadays, the domain seems taken by a cybersquatter and pop-up ads. Pity, it had potential.
