The Keg-parachuting Cargo Planes of SkyRUM is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Baba Rum Dass with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.981 billion SkyRUMmies enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SkyRUM City. The average income tax rate is 61.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The SkyRUMian economy, worth 407 trillion Floating Kegs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Trout Farming. Average income is 58,360 Floating Kegs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, military funding has been stripped back, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. Crime is totally unknown. SkyRUM's national animal is the Flying St Bernard, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

SkyRUM is ranked 1st in SkyRUM and 8,083rd in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 3 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
