The Democratic States of Skies9 is a massive, pleasant nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 1.62 billion Skies9ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.1%.

The strong Skies9ian economy, worth 76.5 trillion Monies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 47,226 Monies, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.

Landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks, school uniforms are compulsory, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skies9's national animal is the Vulture, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Skies9 is ranked 75,952nd in the world and 18th in Nineveh for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 70.33 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
