The Federal Republic of RepublicofScandinavia is a tiny, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 16 million Scandinavians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Spirituality, with Defense, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.8%.

The very strong Scandinavian economy, worth 1.13 trillion Scandi Kronor a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 70,413 Scandi Kronor, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 397,523 per year while the poor average 6,130, a ratio of 64.8 to 1.

The government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, and sex changes are routinely performed at RepublicofScandinavia's hospitals. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. RepublicofScandinavia's national animal is the Scandinavian Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

RepublicofScandinavia is ranked 23,753rd in the world and 18th in The Union of the Royal Alliance for Most Devout, with 1,095.87 Prayers Per Hour.
