New East Scandinavia

Population8.718 billion

CapitalAnagrom Ataf


The Borderlands of New East Scandinavia is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.718 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, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anagrom Ataf. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The New East Scandinavian economy, worth 659 trillion Zoiks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Pizza Delivery, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,626 Zoiks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, statistics show that terrorists often come from broken families, and there's a mortuary next to every New East Scandinavian restaurant. 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 51,415th in the world and 1,631st in the South Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 75,626.88 Standard Monetary Units.
