The Calm Oasis of Scandaland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Barney Fife with a fair hand, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 23.367 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 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%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, and the nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in Free States of Gaia. 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 4th in Free States of Gaia and 2,009th in the world for Safest, scoring 834.2 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
