The Scandinvans

Population32.784 billion

The Glorious Empire of The Scandinvans is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, conspicuous electricity pylons, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 32.784 billion Scandinvans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valdra. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Scandinvansian economy, worth an astonishing 13,028 trillion Darvians a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 397,415 Darvians, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,425,070 per year while the poor average 7,661, a ratio of 447 to 1.

The national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone, the workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour, Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, and pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Scandinvans's national animal is the Artic Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Scandinvans is ranked 16,901st in the world and 18th in Gholgoth for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
