Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Groß Volks Reich of Scandavia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by High-Chancellor Heinrich von Grestin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.882 billion Scandavians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Environment isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karnevka. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scandavian economy, worth 898 trillion National Credits a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 114,054 National Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Scandavia, children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scandavia's national animal is the Black Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is The Church of the State.

Scandavia is ranked 56th in Kotturheim and 91,297th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 11 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
