The Federal Republic of Scanorama is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Matilda Hortensia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 18.449 billion Miracles 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, 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 Miracle economy, worth a remarkable 6,548 trillion Paragons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 354,936 Paragons, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues, one of the most popular models in Scanorama has a scarred face and one working eye, and biology and religious education classes have recently been merged. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Scanorama's national animal is the Newt, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Glinda.

Scanorama is ranked 158,713th in the world and 81st in Nordic Lands for Most Authoritarian, with zero Stalins.
