The Confederate States of Scandinavian Nations is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jeremy Clarkson with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, vat-grown people, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 29.246 billion Scandinavian Gearheads are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eboladrome. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Scandinavian Gearhead economy, worth an astonishing 10,424 trillion cubic inches a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 356,425 cubic inches, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,541,692 per year while the poor average 52,409, a ratio of 29.4 to 1.

Attempts to inform people about their unclaimed property are often mistaken for telephone scams, Scandinavian Gearheads refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, many of the poor live from cradle to grave without ever seeing sunlight, and vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Scandinavian Nations's national animal is the supercar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Grand Tour.

Scandinavian Nations is ranked 244,189th in the world and 66th in Greater Dienstad for Lowest Crime Rates, with 3.07 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
