The Free Republic of Rich Scholars is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, parental licensing program, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 29.131 billion Rich Scholarsians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Education and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rich Scholars City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Rich Scholarsian economy, worth an astonishing 10,817 trillion books a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 371,327 books, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,312,240 per year while the poor average 5,542, a ratio of 597 to 1.

Pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Rich Scholars's national animal is the bookworm, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rich Scholars is ranked 1,039th in the world and 35th in Balder for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 12,041.06 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
