Location: Newlandia

Regional Influence: Powerbroker


The Republic of Vest-Skandinavia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Socialist Party with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, soft-spoken computers, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.103 billion Skandinavians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of International Workers City of Oslo. The average income tax rate is 57.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vest-Skandinavian economy, worth 444 trillion No Currencies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 108,310 No Currencies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, parties on cruise ships go off with a real bang, and buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel. Crime is totally unknown. Vest-Skandinavia's national animal is the No Animal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheist.
