The Holy Christmas Spirit of Skamor is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Rhett Ridgeback with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.981 billion Skamorians 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 Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Red Ridge City. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Skamorian economy, worth 242 trillion florins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,447 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saying "don't do anything that Rhett Ridgeback wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, and knock-knock jokes regularly get removed from websites for being too edgy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skamor's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Skamor is ranked 7,726th in the world and 151st in 10000 Islands for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,842.14 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
