The Rogue Nation of The Skoopers is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, devout population of 107 million Skoopers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 14.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient a Skooper economy, worth 4.42 trillion Skoops a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Tourism, Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 41,317 Skoops, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state, a signed affidavit from a prominent anti-corruption advocate declares that she is in fact a crook after all, high school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, and frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Skoopers's national animal is the Skoopigator, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Skoopers is ranked 189,993rd in the world and 202nd in Refugia for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -4.56 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
