The Free Land of Skoalstraightius is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Le Dude with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service. The compassionate, intelligent population of 9.21 billion Skoalstraightiusians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Right Lip Dip. The average income tax rate is 97%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Skoalstraightius's radio stations, Skoalstraightius's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, extreme political groups are outlawed, and the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skoalstraightius's national animal is the longcut deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the can.

Skoalstraightius is ranked 3,165th in Balder and 116,405th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -8 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
