The Robo Orangugrump of Papercuts and Skittles is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Geoff with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.255 billion Skitters are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Brunswick. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Skittlesian economy, worth a remarkable 3,918 trillion Skits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 274,901 Skits, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, package deals offer tourists the chance to visit the frozen remains of the previous tour group, the new cheese tax is colloquially known as "wheel welfare", and most Skittlesian video games are banned in other countries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Papercuts and Skittles's national animal is the Papercut, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Papercuts and Skittles is ranked 200,061st in the world and 5,740th in the West Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -13.04 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
