Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Constitutional Monarchy of Scandaland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Barney Fife with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 27.914 billion Scandalandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Scandal. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Scandalandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,540 trillion bigbucks a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 126,846 bigbucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, and the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scandaland's national animal is the golden seahorse, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is religious freedom.

Scandaland is ranked 182,565th in the world and 17th in Free States of Gaia for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -27.2 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
