The Confederate States of Scandinavian Nations is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jeremy Clarkson with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 35.022 billion Scandinavian Gearheads 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 minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eboladrome. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Scandinavian Gearhead economy, worth an astonishing 13,155 trillion cubic inches a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 375,640 cubic inches, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

An online tea-bagging epidemic is getting worse and (meta)worse, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, beatboxing has replaced the 'Wilhelm scream' as the nation's most popular sound effect, and subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Scandinavian Nations's national animal is the supercar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Grand Tour.

Scandinavian Nations is ranked 277,910th in the world and 77th in Greater Dienstad for Nicest Citizens, with 0.14 average smiles per day.
