The People's Republic of Skaiana is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Windswept Questant with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.345 billion Skaianians 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prospit. The average income tax rate is 79.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Skaianian economy, worth 152 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 and Tourism. Average income is 65,074 Boonbucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the Fashion Channel can only be viewed on widescreen TVs, and octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 190,455th in the world and 7,150th in Osiris for Most Pro-Market, scoring -84.75 on the Rand Index.
