The Commonwealth of Island States of Skelldia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Mr King Dude with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.738 billion Skelldians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Josť. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Skelldian economy, worth 966 trillion Arrums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 124,855 Arrums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, billions are being spent on a new island airport, blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour, and disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Island States of Skelldia's national animal is the Skelldian fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Island States of Skelldia is ranked 4,452nd in the world and 263rd in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,385.97 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
