The Counter Repormer of Scandavia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by High-Chancellor Heinrich von Grestin II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.049 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karnevka. The average income tax rate is 75%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Woodchip Exports.

Military spending recently hit a new high, punitive tariffs protect local industry, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, its national religion is State Atheism, and its currency is the National Credit.

Scandavia is ranked 41st in Aysling and 93,892nd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -10 on the Hayek Index.
