The Kingdom of Scientia Monstra is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 447 million Scientia Monstrans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mr Happy's Funland. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Scientia Monstran economy, worth 41.0 trillion plumbums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 91,756 plumbums, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 337,513 per year while the poor average 17,632, a ratio of 19.1 to 1.

Major archaeological findings are frequently bulldozed to make way for new buildings, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, the homeless more often beg for mercy than money, and the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scientia Monstra's national animal is the chimera, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Scientia Monstra is ranked 128,754th in the world and 4,722nd in the Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,155.51 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
