The Meritocratic Technocracy of Sklodowska is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate population of 6.286 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 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sklodowskan economy, worth 701 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 111,587 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 166,342nd in the world and 5,109th in the West Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -3.95 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
