The Commonwealth of Island States of Skelldia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Mr King Dude with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.329 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 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Skelldian economy, worth 571 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 major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 131,997 Arrums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, there's a bright dawn ahead for Island States of Skelldia, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, and the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 42,439th in the world and 2,234th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,227.14 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
