“We are for Science, Art, Literature and Philosophy.” Σομαηνως
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
The Technocracy of Scrisix is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Σομαηνως with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, digital currency, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 2.937 billion Scrisixis have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Insulam Socrates. The average income tax rate is 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Scrisixian economy, worth 647 trillion Quid 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 220,584 Quid, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Bins outnumber trees in city parks, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, and religious people are committed to mental institutions for treatment. Crime is totally unknown. Scrisix's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.
