Sciency Advancement

Population6.685 billion

CapitalScientific Progress


The Empire of Sciency Advancement is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Keftan with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.685 billion Sciency Advances enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scientific Progress. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sciency economy, worth a remarkable 1,581 trillion Credits 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. 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 an amazing 236,645 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign despots proudly bandstand on Sciency airwaves, posters on 'Sciency Values' advise against being proud of Sciency Advancement, politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, and government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Sciency Advancement's national animal is the Dogoo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sciency Advancement is ranked 149,478th in the world and 7,588th in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 4.83 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
