The Meritocratic Technocracy of Sklodowska is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its parental licensing program, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate population of 4.697 billion Sklodowskans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Curium. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sklodowskan economy, worth 525 trillion Curies a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,857 Curies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, extreme hiring regulations mean a job in Sklodowska is often a lifetime appointment, the mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of Sklodowska's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance, and the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sklodowska's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sklodowska is ranked 156,611th in the world and 6,410th in the West Pacific for Most Devout, with 3.95 Prayers Per Hour.
