The Scarlet Symphony of Singu1arity is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, public floggings, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.091 billion Singu1arityians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education, Law & Order, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Singu1arity City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Singu1arityian economy, worth a remarkable 4,253 trillion Really Round Pebbles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 351,787 Really Round Pebbles, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,322,169 per year while the poor average 65,340, a ratio of 20.2 to 1.

Late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Leader's questionably sane new coalition partners, thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, and the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Singu1arity's national animal is the flying hippo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Singu1arity is ranked 34,159th in the world and 697th in the Rejected Realms for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 2,507.82 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
