New East Scandinavia

Population6.739 billion

CapitalAnagrom Ataf


The Borderlands of New East Scandinavia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.739 billion Scandinavis 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anagrom Ataf. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The New East Scandinavian economy, worth 472 trillion Zoiks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,097 Zoiks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public, and Jennifer Government is a bestseller. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New East Scandinavia's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New East Scandinavia is ranked 30,721st in the world and 482nd in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 472 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
