Ska Hydorordia

Population3.111 billion


The Kingdom of Ska Hydorordia is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its frequent executions, national health service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.111 billion 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ska Hydorordian economy, worth 431 trillion euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,835 euros, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 524,751 per year while the poor average 25,556, a ratio of 20.5 to 1.

One does not simply walk into the tundra, explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends, many friends and relatives of Leader have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Ska Hydorordia City to enjoy their national art. 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 20,689th in the world and 792nd in Lazarus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,346.33 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
