The Republic of Scientia Major is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Council of the Republic with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 15.637 billion Scientians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elysion. The average income tax rate is 50.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scientian economy, worth a remarkable 2,205 trillion scients a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,043 scients, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, banana distribution among collective farm workers is an important topic in public discourse, it's all quiet on the western front, and 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scientia Major's national animal is the Scientian stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scientia Major is ranked 141,937th in the world and 300th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Pro-Market, scoring 32.78 on the Rand Index.
