The Six Kingdoms of Skako is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by HIM Emperor Winston Artorius with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working population of 6.927 billion Skakoans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Skako. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 89.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Skakoan economy, worth 616 trillion Imperial Coins a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. Average income is 88,958 Imperial Coins, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, and expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skako's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Skako is ranked 3rd in Argyre and 5,051st in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 754.8 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
