The Calm Oasis of Scandaland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Barney Fife with a fair hand, and remarkable for its restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, intelligent population of 23.475 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 devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. 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 large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children. 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 1st in Free States of Gaia and 348th in the world for Best Weather, with 769 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
