The Calm Oasis of Scandaland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Barney Fife with a fair hand, and renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 23.12 billion 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 devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Scandal. The average income tax rate is 100%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Book Publishing.

The welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, all-natural foods are becoming a major fad, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, and euthanasia is legal. 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 1st in Free States of Gaia and 346th in the world for Best Weather, with 735 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
