The Republic of Skaivania is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its soft-spoken computers, complete lack of prisons, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 923 million Skaivanians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeydale. The average income tax rate is 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Skaivanian economy, worth 62.5 trillion marks 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 mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 67,704 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, Leader's pleasure palace epitomizes corruption, students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, and the nation's black ops are starting to get on people's nerves. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skaivania's national animal is the Grizzly bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Skaivania is ranked 216,208th in the world and 8,723rd in The East Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -10.82 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
