Skakira

The Kingdom of Skakira is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its aversion to nipples, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The devout population of 1.001 billion Skakirans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Skakiran economy, worth 39.8 trillion Skamarks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Tourism. Average income is 39,770 Skamarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The dish 'poisson avec poison' is only available on the black market, builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction, walking to the local pizza parlour earns a lovely sports participation ribbon, and dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skakira's national animal is the White Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Skakira is ranked 88,453rd in the world and 3,721st in Osiris for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 201.16 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
