The People's Federation of Skanatavria is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Bjork Trudeau with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.244 billion Skanatavrians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vancouvpenhagen. The average income tax rate is 57.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Skanatavrian economy, worth 216 trillion Metric Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 66,601 Metric Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with job applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods", more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, late night adverts for breast milk co-ops regularly win pornography industry awards, and the government is allowing greater autonomy for some regions in the hopes of quelling growing secessionist movements. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skanatavria's national animal is the moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Skanatavria is ranked 6,363rd in the world and 132nd in Refugia for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 27 valid endorsements.
