The Empire of Sciency Advancement is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Keftan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 8.469 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 government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, 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 Scientific Progress. The average income tax rate is 29.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sciency economy, worth a remarkable 2,043 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, 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 241,253 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Teenagers can't decide if they're more embarrassed by their parents or the country's leader, religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, and members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sciency Advancement is ranked 22,896th in the world and 1,118th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 79.19 on the Human Development Index.
