The Cooperative Syndicates of Scandavia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by People's Commander Caytha Veynrik with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.48 billion Scandavians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Environment is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kreiksberg. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scandavian economy, worth a remarkable 1,376 trillion Scandinavian Kreks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,930 Scandinavian Kreks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

People's Commander Caytha Veynrik's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis, schoolkids say that the air doesn't taste like wee-wee any more, and literally voiceless people are unable to protest when food and water are denied to them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 State Atheism.

Scandavia is ranked 86,068th in the world and 40th in The DankLeft Commune for Most Influential, scoring 175 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
