The Republic of Skaivania is a massive, safe nation, notable for its soft-spoken computers, lack of airports, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.815 billion Skaivanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeydale. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Skaivanian economy, worth 157 trillion marks 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 86,652 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, women across the country are tying the knot, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime is totally unknown. Skaivania's national animal is the Grizzly bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Skaivania is ranked 162,899th in the world and 2,884th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 94.5 billion Standard Monetary Units.
