The Reality TV Show of Scownyland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Big Brother with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 18.654 billion Scownylandians 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.

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.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', and the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists. 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 83rd in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 6,098.5 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
