The Borderlands of Skribbopopolis is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Maxwell The Supreme Overlord of All with an iron fist, and notable for its vat-grown people, digital currency, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 934 million Skribbs 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skrobblbobble. The average income tax rate is 66.7%.

The all-consuming Skrib economy, worth 103 trillion Skrobbles a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 110,413 Skrobbles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Aeroplanes have been converted into housing units after all air travel was outlawed, the only crimes that get investigated are doughnut heists, holiday gift-giving is often peppered with songs of praise to morally-questionable televangelists, and museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skribbopopolis's national animal is the Dracolisk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Skribbopopolis is ranked 71,897th in the world and 1st in Skribbonivstan for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,775.18 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
