The Republic of Vest-Skandinavia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Socialist Party with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.078 billion Skandinavians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of International Workers City of Oslo. The average income tax rate is 56.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vest-Skandinavian economy, worth 438 trillion No Currencies 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 Retail industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 107,483 No Currencies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, and the government funds large training centres to turn No Animals into functioning members of society. Crime is totally unknown. Vest-Skandinavia's national animal is the No Animal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheist.

Vest-Skandinavia is ranked 230,179th in the world and 6th in Newlandia for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.17 crimes per hour.
