The Constitutional Monarchy of Scandaland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Mr Bean with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 30.749 billion Scandalandians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aldebaran. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Scandalandian economy, worth a remarkable 4,311 trillion bigbucks a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 140,218 bigbucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Retail stores are known for creating their own oddly-similar holidays in the months preceding any major festivity, citizens no longer take selfies with their dead relatives at funerals, anti-government web sites are springing up, and urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scandaland's national animal is the golden seahorse, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is none.

Scandaland is ranked 151,492nd in the world and 18th in Free States of Gaia for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -10.49 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
