The Vocal Technique Protectorate of Scrivneria is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kaiser Matthias XVII with a fair hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program. The compassionate, intelligent population of 21.394 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.
The government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", trespassers often find themselves impaled by crossbow bolts, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. 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.
