The Ascended Transhumanist Sociocracy

Population9.777 billion

CapitalSingularity City
LeaderThony Apple


The Eternal Collective of The Ascended Transhumanist Sociocracy is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Thony Apple with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.777 billion Transhumanist Sociocrats are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Singularity City. The average income tax rate is 93.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sociocratic economy, worth a remarkable 1,565 trillion Thonies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 160,149 Thonies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex changes are routinely performed at The Ascended Transhumanist Sociocracy's hospitals, the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, war vets look after war animals, and the government's stance on marriage is 'Let Transhumanist Sociocrats marry themselves'. Crime is totally unknown. The Ascended Transhumanist Sociocracy's national animal is the Earthpony, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Ascended Transhumanist Sociocracy is ranked 44,758th in the world and 15th in Oatland for Most Extreme, scoring 27.94 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
