The Reality TV Show of Scownyland is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Big Brother with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate population of 17.917 billion enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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.

The breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Scownyland, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet. 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 122,652nd in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -28 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
