The Federal Republic of Scanorama is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Johanna Worthington with a fair hand, and remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 10.847 billion Scanoramanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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. The average income tax rate is 1%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The number of students attending university has reached a record high, men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, 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.

Scanorama is ranked 2nd in Nordic Lands and 150th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 344 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
