The People's Republic of Skaiana is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 836 million Skaianians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skaia City. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Skaianian economy, worth 30.5 trillion Boonbucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 36,539 Boonbucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one is quite sure what many government officials look like, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, and political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skaiana's national animal is the sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Skaiana is ranked 45,330th in the world and 2nd in The United States of WRHS for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,382.15 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
