The Republic of Scanhangstan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Mack with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.257 billion Scanhangstanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Macksburg. The average income tax rate is 65.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scanhangstanian economy, worth 339 trillion kroner a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 104,303 kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Counselors diagnose their clients with motherboard complexes, there's more vermin than ever on the metro, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and concert halls sport signs proclaiming "No Shorts, Sandals or Swastikas". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scanhangstan's national animal is the tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Scanhangstan is ranked 28,404th in the world and 1,466th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,600.2 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
