The Technocracy of Scrisix is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Σομαηνως with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 2.411 billion Scrisixis enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Insulam Socrates. The average income tax rate is 65.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scrisixian economy, worth 514 trillion Quid a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 213,348 Quid, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Masterpieces by male artists are on display in the dumpsters behind the gallery, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, and one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man. Crime is totally unknown. Scrisix's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Scrisix is ranked 103,336th in the world and 5,661st in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 383.11 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
