The Empire of Sciency Advancement is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Keftan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.423 billion Sciency Advances hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scientific Progress. The average income tax rate is 29.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Sciency economy, worth a remarkable 2,021 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, Soda Sales, and Retail. 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 239,967 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers, and citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-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.
