The Sodium-Titanium Oxynitride of The Scientific Isles is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Stephen Hawking with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, digital currency, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 6.134 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, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Industry also on the agenda, 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 88.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scientific economy, worth 712 trillion Test Tubes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 116,096 Test Tubes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, Scientific police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, where there's smoke there's the Scientific Forestry Department, and military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies. 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 9,631st in the world and 1st in Leppikanian Puppet Storage for Most Inclusive, scoring 178.51 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
