Sciency Advancement

Population6.718 billion

CapitalScientific Progress


The Empire of Sciency Advancement is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Keftan with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 6.718 billion Sciency Advances enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, 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 71.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sciency economy, worth a remarkable 1,597 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, Retail, and Book Publishing. 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 237,797 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dogoo is one of the most popular forenames in Sciency Advancement, government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, city sidewalks are crowded with overweight people, and meat-eating is frowned upon. 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.

Sciency Advancement is ranked 3,734th in the world and 157th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 7,680.89 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
