The Community of Skenne is a very large, genial nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 198 million Skenneans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 20.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Skennean economy, worth 18.3 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Average income is 92,410 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government has been criticized for giving away Skenne's territory to anyone who claims it, police reduce their paperwork by refusing to arrest anyone, S-SPAN features senators wrestling with ever-increasing production elements, and books are considered luxuries only available to the incredibly wealthy. Crime is almost non-existent. Skenne's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Skenne is ranked 67,523rd in the world and 3,058th in the Rejected Realms for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 72.56 on the Hayek Index.
