The Commonwealth of Chip Skylark is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chip Skylark with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 22.67 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, Industry, and Environment. 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 6,656 trillion Shiny Teeths a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 293,618 Shiny Teeths, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, the tightness of border controls in Chip Skylark leave a little to be desired, tabloids coo over Chip Skylark's expected child, and airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room. 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 1,168th in the world and 15th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 165.92 law-abiding acts per hour.
