The Sodium-Titanium Oxynitride of The Scientific Isles is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Stephen Hawking with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 8.949 billion Scientists enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The EUGSS. The average income tax rate is 89.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scientific economy, worth a remarkable 1,031 trillion Test Tubes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,269 Test Tubes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, the nation's water should not be ingested while operating heavy machinery, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', and more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Scientific Isles's national animal is the Mouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Scientific Isles is ranked 131,256th in the world and 3rd in Leppikanian Puppet Storage for Most Pro-Market, scoring 37.33 on the Rand Index.
