The Science State of Scientists Allied is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Matthias Esher with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 6.457 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 Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. 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 1,327 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 205,629 Solaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 4,270th in the world and 20th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
