The Scarlet Symphony of Singu1arity is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and flagrant waste-dumping.

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 7,699 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 extensive. Average income is an amazing 441,634 Really Round Pebbles, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, foreign leaders are advising that Leader's letters must have gotten lost in the mail, a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", and nation-building is the new national pastime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Singu1arity's national animal is the flying hippo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Singu1arity is ranked 187,967th in the world and 11,744th in the Rejected Realms for Most Extreme, scoring 13.51 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
