The Technocratic Republic of Pax Scio is a huge, safe nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 594 million Scioans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sciopolis. The average income tax rate is 85.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Scioan economy, worth 47.2 trillion Scions a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 79,424 Scions, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, new arrivals are asked the location of the Minister of the Interior's birthmark, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, and high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pax Scio's national animal is the Scioan eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pax Scio is ranked 6,350th in the world and 8th in Social Technocratic Union for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,839.88 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
