The Commonwealth of Chip Skylark is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chip Skylark with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 16.248 billion Chip Skylarkians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dimmsdale. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Chip Skylarkian economy, worth a remarkable 4,619 trillion Shiny Teeths a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 284,315 Shiny Teeths, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, one does not simply walk into the tundra, and recreational drug businesses are regularly pruned if they grow above the maximum legal size. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chip Skylark's national animal is the Fairy Godparents, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Nope.

Chip Skylark is ranked 208,453rd in the world and 910th in 10000 Islands for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.48 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
