The Reality TV Show of Scownyland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Big Brother with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, intelligent population of 19.381 billion Scownylandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scownyville. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors. Crime is totally unknown. Scownyland's national animal is the Non Celebrity, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Triganic Pu.

Scownyland is ranked 1st in The Land of Nearly Enough and 117,641st in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -49 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
