The Republic of Skrelex is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 521 million Skrelexes 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skrillax. The average income tax rate is 25.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Skrelexian economy, worth 36.6 trillion Skrels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,270 Skrels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities run on potato batteries, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Skrelex's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Skrelex is ranked 92,054th in the world and 4,023rd in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,702.35 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
