The Calm Oasis of Scandaland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Barney Fife with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 22.543 billion are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 99%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Book Publishing.

It is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, nude art is becoming wildly popular, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, and the military has grudgingly released all top secret information in an effort for greater transparency. 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 24th in Free States of Gaia and 122,253rd in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -2,340.75 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
