The Empire of Sciency Advancement is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Keftan with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 10.16 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, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scientific Progress. The average income tax rate is 61.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sciency economy, worth a remarkable 3,016 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, 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 296,912 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government funds large training centres to turn Dogoos into functioning members of society, fat-shaming is now public policy, theatre audiences often need a telescope to see the stage, and the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sciency Advancement is ranked 243,743rd in the world and 9,491st in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 5.25 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
