The Spacity Satellite of Love of SkyFac TransOrbital is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Bryce Carrington with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, infamous sell-swords, and feral children. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 24.671 billion SkyFac TransOrbitalians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ring One. The average income tax rate is 58.5%.

The frighteningly efficient SkyFac TransOrbitalian economy, worth a remarkable 2,676 trillion credits a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 108,503 credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Supermarkets must refund spoilt milk even six months after the sale, the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away, virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in Ring One, and restaurateurs put a lot of effort into persuading customers to accept wafer-thin mints. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SkyFac TransOrbital's national animal is the vacc worm, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

SkyFac TransOrbital is ranked 214,110th in the world and 25th in Taijitu for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.53 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
