The Commonwealth of Island States of Skelldia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Mr King Dude with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 3.786 billion Skelldians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Josť. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Skelldian economy, worth 494 trillion Arrums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 130,659 Arrums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, imitation is the sincerest form of felony, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Island States of Skelldia's national animal is the Skelldian fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Island States of Skelldia is ranked 8,821st in the world and 540th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 87.9 on the Human Development Index.
