OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Kingdom of Ska Hydorordia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.129 billion Ska Hydorordians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ska Hydorordian economy, worth 154 trillion euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 136,857 euros, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 392,950 per year while the poor average 37,902, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.

The government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Ska Hydorordian Liberator", and one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ska Hydorordia's national animal is the dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ska Hydorordia is ranked 89,700th in the world and 3,581st in The East Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 540.45 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
