The Federal Republic of Scanorama is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Matilda Hortensia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 15.378 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, 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 5,113 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 332,550 Paragons, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, all tariffs have been abolished, snap elections are called over every minor impasse, and drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government. 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 4,231st in the world and 12th in Nordic Lands for Highest Poor Incomes, with 117,468.21 Standard Monetary Units.
