New Skandenivia

Population4.975 billion

LeaderKing Frederick III


The Cronnerige of New Skandenivia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Frederick III with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.975 billion New Skandenivians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cosseburg. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse New Skandenivian economy, worth 477 trillion Cronnes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,927 Cronnes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks, King Frederick III is strangely popular with male politicians' wives, and newspapers are running a front-page picture of King Frederick III holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Skandenivia's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Skandenivia is ranked 21,079th in the world and 342nd in Europe for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 248.94 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
