The Colony of Scia Xen is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Fuya Gert with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, enslaved workforce, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.708 billion Scia Xenians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zora. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Scia Xenian economy, worth 759 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Woodchip Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 161,380 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 541,624 per year while the poor average 35,683, a ratio of 15.2 to 1.

The studies of art and philosophy are banned, veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, the nation's apology for those it has executed in the last year has come a little late for some, and when shaking hands with foreign leaders Fuya Gert wears an armoured gauntlet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scia Xen's national animal is the mountain eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Taoism.

Scia Xen is ranked 65,432nd in the world and 1st in Lisseum for Most Extreme, scoring 24.31 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
