Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Mystery Raiding Machine of Scooby-Doo is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Tugboat Dan with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.916 billion Meddling Kids have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dol Guldur. The average income tax rate is 61.1%.

The Scooby-Dooan economy, worth 413 trillion Scooby Snacks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 46,370 Scooby Snacks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, and government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Scooby-Doo's national animal is the Great Dane, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Islam.

Scooby-Doo is ranked 475th in DEN and 50,883rd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.613 Stalins.
