The Grand Duchy of Skamor is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 303 million Skamorians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Red Ridge City. The average income tax rate is 63.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Skamorian economy, worth 19.6 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 64,838 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Messiah (formerly known as Brian) is a mayoral candidate, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined. 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 178,328th in the world and 1,996th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 7.86 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
