OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Federal Republic of Scanorama is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Matilda Cardamone with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, surprisingly youthful workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.96 billion maggots hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Diamond Princess. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient maggot economy, worth a remarkable 3,574 trillion Velocity Points a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 298,833 Velocity Points, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 843,541 per year while the poor average 84,743, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

The number of students attending university has reached a record high, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Scanorama's radio stations, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and the entire country is an urban wasteland as the well-to-do commute from space (Scanorama has found 5 easter eggs). Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Scanorama's national animal is the Mockingjay, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Airbus Group.

Scanorama is ranked 12th in Nordic Lands and 1,305th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 11 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
