Northern Scandinavian Islands

Population5.968 billion



The Royal United Realms of Northern Scandinavian Islands is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, devout population of 5.968 billion Scandlandsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Markarfljot. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scandlandsian economy, worth 790 trillion Crowns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 132,429 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Class action lawsuits have gone up in smoke thanks to government interference, delivery truck companies use hospital parking lots to store 16-wheelers, foreign nations often blame poverty and terrorism on Scandlandsian selfishness, and vaccinations are mandatory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Scandinavian Islands's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Northern Scandinavian Islands is ranked 18,542nd in the world and 49th in The Western Isles for Largest Governments, scoring 26.36 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
