The Monarchical Republic of Sciongrad is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Iolanda Serra de Nazaré with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.069 billion Scionites are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leiria. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The all-consuming Scionite economy, worth a remarkable 2,375 trillion Escudoes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 131,451 Escudoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sciongrad's national animal is the Rooster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of the Clove.

Sciongrad is ranked 183,247th in the world and 95th in International Democratic Union for Most Pro-Market, scoring -78.89 on the Rand Index.
