Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Scanorama is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Matilda Hortensia with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 15.194 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 5,004 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 329,390 Paragons, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Max Barry is this year's Miss Scanorama, hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region, most citizens in Scanorama are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, and town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists. 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 135,852nd in the world and 79th in Nordic Lands for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 310.82 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
