The Sk8ing Unicorn

Population4.1 billion

CapitalUnicorn Cradle City
LeaderSk8er Of Bodom


The Rainbow Land of The Sk8ing Unicorn is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sk8er Of Bodom with an even hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 4.1 billion Unicorn Sk8ers enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unicorn Cradle City. The average income tax rate is 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sk8ing Unicorn's economy, worth 461 trillion unicoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 112,637 unicoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Billion-unicoin sentient AI killbots roll through the streets dispensing hot dogs and T-shirts, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, the government loves seeing the little people fight, and lobster tastes best when it is red. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Sk8ing Unicorn's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Sk8ing Unicorn is ranked 9,901st in the world and 298th in the South Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 13.13 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
