The Federal Republic of Scanorama is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Matilda Hortensia with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, ritual sacrifices, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 15.563 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, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of 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 5,176 trillion Paragons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 332,595 Paragons, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Snap elections are called over every minor impasse, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, and Scanorama Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere'. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Scanorama's national animal is the Newt, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Glinda.

Scanorama is ranked 3,432nd in the world and 5th in Nordic Lands for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 8,384.49 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
