The Borg Collective of Scrisix is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Collective with an even hand, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, compulsory vegetarianism, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed population of 4.878 billion Borgs are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unicomplex. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Borg economy, worth a remarkable 1,373 trillion Energy 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, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, 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 281,592 Energy Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, census workers are having a hard time figuring out who is actually living in Scrisix after the ban on emigration was lifted, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, and deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Scrisix's national animal is the Automata, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scrisix is ranked 202,271st in the world and 319th in Karma for Least Corrupt Governments, with 41.56 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
