The Rueful Countenance of Scandaland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Barney Fife with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 13.138 billion, 13.019 billion of whom are zombies, Scandalandians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although the Environment and Social Equality are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Scandal. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, colleges adhere to rigid ethnic quotas for admissions, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scandaland's national animal is the golden seahorse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is religious freedom, and its currency is the bigbuck.

Scandaland is ranked 21st in Free States of Gaia and 114,438th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -26 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Scandaland is currently researching a cure.
