The United Kingdom of Scani is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.935 billion Scandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Øresundstad. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scandian economy, worth 514 trillion kronor a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 130,843 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and being dead no longer has any benefits. Crime is totally unknown. Scani's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Scani is ranked 37,563rd in the world and 980th in Lazarus for Most Extreme, scoring 29.97 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
