The Scarlet Symphony of Singu1arity is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 13.736 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Law & Order, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. 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 5,245 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 381,888 Really Round Pebbles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,163,051 per year while the poor average 97,319, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Concert halls sport signs proclaiming "No Shorts, Sandals or Swastikas", citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, rude retail employees are now even ruder homeless panhandlers, and school children across the country are staging hunger strikes to protest government-mandated salads. 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 77,077th in the world and 2,821st in the Rejected Realms for Most Authoritarian, with 784.04 milliStalins.
