The Technocratic State of Scientists Allied is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Matthias Esher with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, vat-grown people, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 9.1 billion Scientists 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 enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Scientists Alliedian economy, worth a remarkable 2,316 trillion Solaris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 254,547 Solaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, glamping Scientists won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, and first-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scientists Allied's national animal is the Lab Mice, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scientists Allied is ranked 204,191st in the world and 345th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -12.1 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
