The Posadist State of Skaitan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by High Priest Proteus with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, state-planned economy, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 1.513 billion Skaitinians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alienslandhereopolis. The average income tax rate is 35.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Skaitinian economy, worth 81.0 trillion Credits 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 a slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. 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 53,514 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

National parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", a signed affidavit from a prominent anti-corruption advocate declares that she is in fact a crook after all, and students in Skaitan's schools rarely attend their classes. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Skaitan's national animal is the Pygmy killer whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Posadism.

Skaitan is ranked 42,285th in the world and 188th in The Free Nations Region for Highest Poor Incomes, with 43,530.7 Standard Monetary Units.
