The Commonwealth of Island States of Skelldia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Mr King Dude with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.036 billion Skelldians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Josť. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Skelldian economy, worth 790 trillion Arrums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 130,962 Arrums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Josť" t-shirts, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, and five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Island States of Skelldia's national animal is the Skelldian fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Island States of Skelldia is ranked 3,112th in the world and 172nd in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 134.77 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
