The Kingdom of Skylog is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by LORD HOTNESS with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.883 billion Skyians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Town. The average income tax rate is 69.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Skylogian economy, worth 278 trillion Skas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 148,047 Skas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Skylog with a very polite populace, one does not simply walk into the tundra, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, and guns don't kill people — heroes do. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Skylog's national animal is the Xakabi and its national religion is Hottest.

Skylog is ranked 63,188th in the world and 717th in the Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 278 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
