The Spoiled Beauty of A Country Run by Scientists is a massive, genial nation, ruled by A Bunch of Scientists with an even hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 2.094 billion Scientists have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Zagreb. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Scientistian economy, worth 96.8 trillion Theories a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is 46,210 Theories, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, the best doughnut stores have been taken over by foreign police officers, children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Country Run by Scientists's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is None.

A Country Run by Scientists is ranked 55,404th in the world and 623rd in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 63.68 on the Human Development Index.
