The Atheist Empire Ambassador of Superior Intelligence is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by El Presidente with an even hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless population of 30.214 billion Smart Asses are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Welfare, 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 People's Palace. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient superior intelligent economy, worth a remarkable 5,129 trillion credits a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 169,758 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

News headlines usually include p-values, international humanitarian organisations are applauding the government for ending the death penalty, East Lebatuckese luxury goods are plundered by the working class of Superior Intelligence, and incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Superior Intelligence's national animal is the chimpanzee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Superior Intelligence is ranked 239,588th in the world and 47th in Philosophy 115 for Rudest Citizens, with 6.3 Insults Per Minute.
