The Monarchical Republic of Sciongrad is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Iolanda Serra de Nazaré with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.63 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 97.3%.

The all-consuming Scionite economy, worth a remarkable 1,481 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 127,395 Escudoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pushy mums tell their kids to be doctors and engineers but steer them away from being penniless lawyers, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', the endangered saltwater humpback Rooster is only seen in captivity programs, and school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students. 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 1,182nd in the world and 2nd in International Democratic Union for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 100.09 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
