The Empire of Socialist Kingdoms of Scania is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.491 billion Scanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Socialist Kingdoms of Scanian economy, worth 156 trillion Scanian Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 62,704 Scanian Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School uniforms are compulsory, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, and popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Kingdoms of Scania's national animal is the Domestic Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Socialist Kingdoms of Scania is ranked 67,629th in the world and 3,387th in The North Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 70.18 Workforce Participation Rate.
