The Vocal Technique Protectorate of Scrivneria is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Kaiser Matthias XVII with a fair hand, and renowned for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 20.738 billion Scrivnerians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Social Welfare, with areas such as Defence and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aeternia. The average income tax rate is 96%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Surveillance cameras are banned, police officers spend more time on calisthenics than actually catching criminals, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Scrivneria's national animal is the singing dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the breve.

Scrivneria is ranked 13th in The YoungWorld and 112,407th in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -16 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
