The Holy Rock Cathedral of Skillet is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by John Cooper with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 3.811 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Religion & Spirituality, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Panhead City. The average income tax rate is 77%. A very small private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

The military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds, the nanny industry has had a boom after maternity leave was recently banned, cars are banned, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skillet's national animal is the Monster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Christiany, and its currency is the Frying Pan.

Skillet is ranked 914th in Balder and 23,492nd in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 59 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
