Location: the Rejected Realms
The Skandistan of Gettersburg is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 7.879 billion enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iron Strom. The average income tax rate is 96%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Customs turn away those considered to have an unfavourable ethnicity, international tensions are high as Gettersburg threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, and conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gettersburg's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Kharijite, and its currency is the Pounds.
