The Science Union of Ilovescience is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Stephen Hawking with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, prohibition of alcohol, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 821 million Ilovescienceans 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.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Academia. The average income tax rate is 47.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Ilovesciencean economy, worth 44.2 trillion Shells a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 53,827 Shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild, the question of 'what is Stephen Hawking's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, and if a tree falls in the forest Stephen Hawking is personally notified. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ilovescience's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ilovescience is ranked 107,125th in the world and 8th in The Free Lands of Mirth for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 294.08 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
