Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Constitutional Monarchy of Scandaland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Barney Fife with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 27.693 billion Scandalandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Scandalandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,399 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 122,768 bigbucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', and young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus. 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 4,805th in the world and 3rd in Free States of Gaia for Highest Poor Incomes, with 113,335.48 Standard Monetary Units.
