The Monarchical Republic of Sciongrad is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Iolanda Serra de Nazaré with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, smutty television, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.702 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 1,628 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 128,190 Escudoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. 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 4,587th in the world and 14th in International Democratic Union for Smartest Citizens, with 117.12 Quips Per Hour.
