Regional Influence: Handshaker
Location: Capitalist Paradise
|Leader||The Council of the Republic|
The Republic of Scientia Major is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Council of the Republic with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 13.829 billion Scientians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elysion. The average income tax rate is 43.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Scientian economy, worth a remarkable 1,931 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 139,685 scients, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, future leaders of Scientia Major regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park. 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.
