Sciency Advancement

Population8.669 billion

CapitalScientific Progress


The Empire of Sciency Advancement is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Keftan with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and national health service. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 8.669 billion Sciency Advances enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, 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 40.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sciency economy, worth a remarkable 2,280 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, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, 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 263,064 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every school is receiving a brand new eraser, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, and the people are famous throughout the region for their perfect yellow teeth. 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 6,807th in the world and 249th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 394.89 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
