OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Commonwealth of Island States of Skelldia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mr King Dude with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, ubiquitous missile silos, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.684 billion Skelldians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Josť. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Skelldian economy, worth 614 trillion Arrums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 131,227 Arrums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, and posters on 'Skelldian Values' advise against being proud of Island States of Skelldia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Island States of Skelldia's national animal is the Skelldian fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Island States of Skelldia is ranked 159,501st in the world and 8,200th in The North Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.66 Kickbacks Per Hour.
