The Faculty of The Ivory Tower of Academia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Professor with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.792 billion Academics hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of UniverCity. The average income tax rate is 55.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Academic economy, worth 830 trillion Theses a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,253 Theses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to The Ivory Tower of Academia as a reminder of their "special relationship", unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and patriotic citizens simply tend to applaud rather than sing the nation's praises. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Ivory Tower of Academia's national animal is the PhD student, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
