The Constitutional Monarchy of Scannorse is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 12.95 billion Scannorseans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Welfare, although Education, Spirituality, and Healthcare are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Scannorsean economy, worth 117 trillion plunkies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Pizza Delivery, and Information Technology. Average income is 9,051 plunkies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gambling is outlawed, children regularly take part in blood sports that result in extreme boo-boos, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, and citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scannorse's national animal is the nordic horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scannorse is ranked 118,545th in the world and 1,339th in Artificial Solar System for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
