The Sk8ing Unicorn

The Rainbow Land of The Sk8ing Unicorn is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sk8er Of Bodom with an even hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 3.822 billion Unicorn Sk8ers enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unicorn Cradle City. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sk8ing Unicorn's economy, worth 425 trillion unicoins 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 impressive 111,225 unicoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Farting etiquette is taught in schools, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and the nation's air force consists of strongly-worded letters folded into paper airplanes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Sk8ing Unicorn's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Sk8ing Unicorn is ranked 156,865th in the world and 5,582nd in Balder for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -17.55 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
