The Vocal Technique Protectorate of Scrivneria is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kaiser Matthias XVII with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 27.1 billion Scrivnerians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Welfare, with Education, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aeternia. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The enormous but sluggish Scrivnerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,093 trillion breves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 40,364 breves, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, lavish state dinners in Aeternia are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scrivneria's national animal is the singing dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Scrivneria is ranked 142,948th in the world and 7th in The YoungWorld for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 13.33 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
