The Reality TV Show of Scownyland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Big Brother with an even hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 19.199 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 is mainly concerned with Education, although the Environment and Social Equality are secondary priorities. 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.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, and graffiti graces every city's streets. 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 9th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 503 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
