The Forgotten Empire of SkyDip is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Claire DuFray with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 6.712 billion SkyDipians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castle-On-The-Cliffs. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient SkyDipian economy, worth a remarkable 1,344 trillion Standardized Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 200,381 Standardized Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, tourists visiting the nation are harangued for being capitalist pig-dogs, and debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SkyDip's national animal is the Glowing Kliffin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

SkyDip is ranked 2,811th in the world and 38th in Europeia for Highest Poor Incomes, with 163,606.06 Standard Monetary Units.
