The Technodemocracy of Scantarbia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Nicetas Akylas with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 3.922 billion Scantarbians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcturus. The average income tax rate is 94.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Scantarbian economy, worth 728 trillion Scants a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 185,814 Scants, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, the new national anthem passes the Turing Test, and glamping Scantarbians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scantarbia's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Monotheism.

Scantarbia is ranked 146,324th in the world and 148th in The Western Isles for Most Pro-Market, scoring -73.89 on the Rand Index.
