The Reality TV Show of Scownyland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Big Brother with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 19.623 billion Scownylandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Social Policy, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scownyville. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Scownylandian economy, worth a remarkable 4,400 trillion Triganic Pus a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 224,255 Triganic Pus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, Scownyland has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime is totally unknown. Scownyland's national animal is the Non Celebrity, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scownyland is ranked 1st in The Land of Nearly Enough and 481st in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 484 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
