The Rueful Countenance of Scandaland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Barney Fife with a fair hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 23.688 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 is mainly concerned with Education, although the Environment and Social Equality are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Scandal. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

A fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, international tensions are high as Scandaland threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. 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 41,808th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 64 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
