Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Constitutional Monarchy of Scandaland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Barney Fife with a fair hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 24.951 billion Scandalandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Scandal. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Scandalandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,178 trillion bigbucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 87,301 bigbucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extreme political groups are outlawed, the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Fort Scandal for fear of causing a fuss, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, and government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 19th in Free States of Gaia and 144,898th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -58 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
