Scanner Darkly

Population11.298 billion

Animalguerrilla fighter

The Stormy Weather of Scanner Darkly is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 11.298 billion Scanner Darklyians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Spirituality, with Welfare, Environment, and Education also on the agenda, while Law & Order isn't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.2%.

The strong Scanner Darklyian economy, worth 335 trillion francolinos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 29,667 francolinos, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government has adopted a more thrifty attitude to administrating the country's needs, all recreational drugs are legal, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Scanner Darkly's radio stations. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Scanner Darkly's national animal is the guerrilla fighter, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scanner Darkly is ranked 24,977th in the world and 30th in Artificial Solar System for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
