Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Groß Volks Reich of Scandavia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by High-Chancellor Heinrich von Grestin with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.261 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, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Environment is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karnevka. The average income tax rate is 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scandavian economy, worth 956 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 115,808 National Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Scandavia with a very polite populace, the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, and the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers. 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 Novus Universale and 110,549th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -536 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
