The Long and Winding Road of SkodaTruck Drivers is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 17.309 billion SkodaTruck Driversians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Motor City. The average income tax rate is 45.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming SkodaTruck Driversian economy, worth 964 trillion Das a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 55,724 Das, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Aides are afraid to ask if Leader wants a cup of tea or coffee, anyone who sneezes at border crossings is turned away, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, and extreme hiring regulations mean a job in SkodaTruck Drivers is often a lifetime appointment. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. SkodaTruck Drivers's national animal is the Sko, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

SkodaTruck Drivers is ranked 112,964th in the world and 9th in Earth United for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,224.95 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
