Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Constitutional Monarchy of Scandaland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Barney Fife with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 27.523 billion Scandalandians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Scandalandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,425 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 124,453 bigbucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign investment has dropped to a trickle after laws were passed preventing investors from taking their earnings abroad, a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, artists are pillars of society, and Scandaland's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand. 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 5,899th in the world and 4th in Free States of Gaia for Most Developed, scoring 86.28 on the Human Development Index.
