The Jumpy but Peaceful Hamsters of The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Mr Squiggle with a fair hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, smutty television, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.675 billion Skaraborgians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hamsterdam. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Skaraborgian economy, worth 160 trillion Skaraborgsk Anorks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,768 Skaraborgsk Anorks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Journalists often nap through tedious police press briefings, tourists visit The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg to mass-moon Skaraborgian politicians, college athletes are arrested for selling lemonade, and everyone hates people who encourage hate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg's national animal is the Hamster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Wheelism.

The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg is ranked 3,062nd in the world and 186th in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 165.22 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
