The Principality of Scientism is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tau with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, frequent executions, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 13.431 billion Scientists live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scientist City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.8%.

The very strong Scientist economy, worth 735 trillion Bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 54,778 Bitcoins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 250,320 per year while the poor average 7,303, a ratio of 34.3 to 1.

Crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Scientism, Scientism has designated Scientist City as its capital city, and Tau has just been declared ruler of Scientism in an international press conference. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Scientism's national animal is the Water Squirrel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Scientism is ranked 116,911th in the world and 6th in Confederation of the Sciences for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,198.99 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
