The Reality TV Show of Scownyland is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Big Brother with an even hand, and remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.948 billion, 6.937 billion of whom are zombies, Scownylandians 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although the Environment and Social Equality are on the agenda. 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.

Citizens select which government department gets their income tax Triganic Pus each year, voting is voluntary, a well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, and every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government. 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 115,178th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -49 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Scownyland is currently considering its options.

People: 11,001,527

Dead: 12,124,108,328

Survival Rate: 0.06%
