The Confederacy of Scandoslavkostia is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 652 million Scando-Slavs are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 26.9%.

The Scando-Slavian economy, worth 35.4 trillion Gold Minahs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,335 Gold Minahs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Everyone has the equal opportunity to have their wallet stolen, the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, the nation's forests are full of treasure hunters in military-grade survival gear, and coalition governments are essential to passing new laws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scandoslavkostia's national animal is the Scarlet-Spotted Falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Scandoslavkostia is ranked 69,989th in the world and 17th in Byzantine Christendom for Most Conservative, scoring 70.3 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
