The Democratic States of Skonland is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.324 billion Skonlandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seaside. The average income tax rate is 40.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Skonlandian economy, worth 71.9 trillion skoners a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 54,332 skoners, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing, recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business, and citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skonland's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Skonland is ranked 169,402nd in the world and 6,404th in Balder for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -4.47 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
