The Federal Republic of Scanorama is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Matilda Hortensia with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.657 billion maggots live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry also on the agenda, 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 3,859 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 304,922 Velocity Points, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.
The Hanging Gardens account for half of Diamond Princess's water use, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. 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.
