The Free Land of Skoalstraightius is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Le Dude with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.272 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.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Right Lip Dip. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.
The Skoalstraightiusian economy, worth 770 trillion cans a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 83,147 cans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
'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 a well-funded 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.
