The Forested Monarchy of New Skandenivia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Charlotte VII with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.755 billion New Skandenivians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Valentine City. The average income tax rate is 84.1%.

The powerhouse New Skandenivian economy, worth 264 trillion Kröns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 95,868 Kröns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

People who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, t-shirts displaying a photo of Queen Charlotte VII performing the Full-Monty are selling out, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Skandenivia's national animal is the Puffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

New Skandenivia is ranked 196,992nd in the world and 1,177th in Europe for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -8 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
