The Federal Republic of Scanorama is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Matilda Hortensia with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 16.289 billion maggots live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Diamond Princess. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient maggot economy, worth a remarkable 5,481 trillion Paragons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 336,543 Paragons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,150,668 per year while the poor average 72,368, a ratio of 15.9 to 1.
Anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, the recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter, rundown towns are frequently sold to billionaires for their pet projects, and military funding has been stripped back. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Scanorama's national animal is the Newt, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Glinda.
