Equal and United Scientists

Population344 million


The Free Land of Equal and United Scientists is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 344 million Scientists enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Scientific economy, worth 7.58 trillion unios a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 22,041 unios, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, and country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Equal and United Scientists's national animal is the octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Equal and United Scientists is ranked 202,236th in the world and 3,876th in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 7.56 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
