The Technocrates

Population1.406 billion

LeaderHari Seldon
FaithGalactic Ascendance


The Institution of The Technocrates is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Hari Seldon with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.406 billion Technocrats are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trantor. The average income tax rate is 81.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Technocratic economy, worth 235 trillion ΨCredits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 167,787 ΨCredits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, students at universities think exercise bikes are pieces of abstract art, almost every singles' party has a clergy and courtesans theme, and government popup ads are springing up like weeds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Technocrates's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Galactic Ascendance.

The Technocrates is ranked 52,546th in the world and 766th in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 235 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
