Ska Hydorordia

The Kingdom of Ska Hydorordia is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 442 million Ska Hydorordians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 68.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ska Hydorordian economy, worth 50.6 trillion euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 114,488 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation, male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness', construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, and courses on ornithology and apiology are surprisingly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ska Hydorordia's national animal is the dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ska Hydorordia is ranked 149,141st in the world and 5,819th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -51.98 on the Hayek Index.
