The Commonwealth of Chip Skylark is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Chip Skylark with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cheerful population of 18.541 billion Chip Skylarkians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dimmsdale. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Chip Skylarkian economy, worth a remarkable 5,379 trillion Shiny Teeths a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 290,143 Shiny Teeths, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television, and the Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chip Skylark's national animal is the Fairy Godparents, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Nope.

Chip Skylark is ranked 23,382nd in the world and 169th in 10000 Islands for Most Income Equality, scoring 76.27 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
