The Empire of Sciency Advancement is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Keftan with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.174 billion Sciency Advances enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
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 63.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Sciency economy, worth a remarkable 1,395 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 225,996 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
Innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, and guns don't kill people heroes do. 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.
