The Republic of Scientia Major is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Council of the Republic with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, pith helmet sales, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 17.469 billion Scientians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elysion. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scientian economy, worth a remarkable 2,397 trillion scients a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 137,240 scients, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, the stratosphere is full of "silent but deadly" attacks from Council of the Republic's rear echelons, city workers have declared that rolling markets aren't good for business after all, and producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scientia Major's national animal is the Scientian stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scientia Major is ranked 6,674th in the world and 60th in Capitalist Paradise for Highest Economic Output, with 2,397 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
