OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Reality TV Show of Scownyland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Big Brother with an even hand, and remarkable for its restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, intelligent population of 18.512 billion Scownylandians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent 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.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, and Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes. 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 111,926th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -32 on the Hayek Index.
