Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Constitutional Monarchy of Scandaland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Barney Fife with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 27.339 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 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Scandalandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,389 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 123,965 bigbucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need, the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, and there is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every Scandalandian grocery store. 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 9,560th in the world and 4th in Free States of Gaia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,941.45 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
