The Commonwealth of Chip Skylark is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chip Skylark with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.404 billion Chip Skylarkians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dimmsdale. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Chip Skylarkian economy, worth a remarkable 4,092 trillion Shiny Teeths a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 284,155 Shiny Teeths, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Diminutive Chip Skylarkian generals are feared for their aggressiveness, delivery truck companies use hospital parking lots to store 16-wheelers, environmental legislation occurs cyclically, and movie references are legally admissible in court. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chip Skylark's national animal is the Fairy Godparents, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Nope.

Chip Skylark is ranked 967th in the world and 13th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 155.51 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
