The Rueful Countenance of Scandaland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Barney Fife with a fair hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 23.657 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 concentrates mainly on Education, although the Environment and Social Equality are on the agenda. 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.

Legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, Scandaland's famous countrysides are shrouded by wind farms, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios. 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 9th in Free States of Gaia and 16,687th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 32 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
