The Ascended Transhumanist Sociocracy

Population7.683 billion

CapitalSingularity City
LeaderThony Apple


The Eternal Collective of The Ascended Transhumanist Sociocracy is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Thony Apple with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.683 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 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sociocratic economy, worth a remarkable 1,220 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 158,898 Thonies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a lot of babies crying for milk in the middle of the day, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, and the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear". 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 47,102nd in the world and 34th in Oatland for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
