The Empire of Scandrial is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Lord Conqueror with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, aversion to nipples, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.211 billion Skaa are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Nexus of a Thousand Spires. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Skaa economy, worth a remarkable 3,321 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 534,788 bitcoins, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, the nation has always been at war with Moltovea, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scandrial's national animal is the crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scandrial is ranked 18,201st in the world and 554th in The East Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,415.59 Tourists Per Hour.
