The Republic of Scanhangstan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Mack with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, zero percent divorce rate, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed population of 1.823 billion Scanhangstanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Macksburg. The average income tax rate is 57.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scanhangstanian economy, worth 195 trillion kroner a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 107,496 kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, in court almost every witness is a hostile witness, and Rupert Bear is considered to be the most risqué TV programme in Scanhangstan. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scanhangstan's national animal is the tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Scanhangstan is ranked 25,484th in the world and 1,276th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 87.54 Years.
