The Technodemocracy of Scantarbia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nicetas Akylas with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 3.728 billion Scantarbians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcturus. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Scantarbian economy, worth 690 trillion Scants a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 185,328 Scants, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, the new national anthem passes the Turing Test, and glamping Scantarbians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scantarbia's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Monotheism.

Scantarbia is ranked 64,639th in the world and 112th in The Western Isles for Most Stationary, with 117.6282580512 Days.
