The Blitzkrieg Advocate of Scandavia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by High-Chancellor Heinrich von Grestin with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.527 billion Scandavians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Environment isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. The average income tax rate is 70.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scandavian economy, worth a remarkable 1,111 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 116,677 Reichsmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Scandavia with a very polite populace, the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, and the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scandavia's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is The Church of the State.

Scandavia is ranked 9,574th in the world and 442nd in Lazarus for Most Avoided, scoring 342.96 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
