The Sironian Commonwealth of Skedoria is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Queen Tal'Navi with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.517 billion Skedar hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Republic City. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Skedorian economy, worth a remarkable 3,002 trillion Sironian Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 181,812 Sironian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, wheelchair users complain it is nearly impossible for them to cross the road in Republic City, and pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skedoria's national animal is the Andosan Monitor Lizard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Jaalism.

Skedoria is ranked 19,112th in the world and 167th in 10000 Islands for Most Patriotic, with 35.24 flags saluted per person per day.
