Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Monarchical Republic of Sciongrad is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Iolanda Serra de Nazaré with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.09 billion Scionites 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 large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leiria. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The powerhouse Scionite economy, worth a remarkable 1,403 trillion Escudoes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 126,595 Escudoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers have seized control of the economy, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, and nothing gets the party jumping like Iolanda Serra de Nazaré specifying how high. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sciongrad's national animal is the Rooster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of the Clove.

Sciongrad is ranked 1,267th in the world and 2nd in International Democratic Union for Longest Average Lifespans, with 92.09 Years.
