Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Constitutional Monarchy of Scandaland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Barney Fife with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 28.287 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.

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 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Scandalandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,656 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 129,255 bigbucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex changes are routinely performed at Scandaland's hospitals, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, and the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy. 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 11,342nd in the world and 2nd in Free States of Gaia for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 6,386.82 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
