The Federal Republic of Scanorama is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Matilda Cardamone with a fair hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.719 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Law & Order receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Diamond Princess. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, private law firms are unheard of, and graffiti graces every city's streets. Crime is totally unknown. Scanorama's national animal is the Mockingjay, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is Airbus Group, and its currency is the Velocity Point.
