The Holy Empire of The Sky Lands is a huge, safe nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 359 million Sky Landsians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.7%.

The strong Sky Landsian economy, worth 24.1 trillion Holy Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is 67,164 Holy Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

The military is plagued with unethical researchers, environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, and the tax department is having withdrawal symptoms. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Sky Lands's national animal is the Dove, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

The Sky Lands is ranked 37,204th in the world and 1,856th in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 4,600.64 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
