The Scarlet Symphony of Singu1arity is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, sprawling nuclear power plants, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 13.724 billion Singu1arityians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Law & Order, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Singu1arity City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Singu1arityian economy, worth a remarkable 5,262 trillion Really Round Pebbles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 383,428 Really Round Pebbles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,141,751 per year while the poor average 100,891, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.

The government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and concert halls sport signs proclaiming "No Shorts, Sandals or Swastikas". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Singu1arity's national animal is the flying hippo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Singu1arity is ranked 507th in the world and 20th in the Rejected Realms for Rudest Citizens, with 410.2 Insults Per Minute.
