|Leader||First Marshal Oraka|
The Confederation of Skaldafen of Scocialist Provinces is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by First Marshal Oraka with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 10.732 billion Skaldanics are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kęp Jriak. The average income tax rate is 91.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Skaldafen economy, worth a remarkable 2,343 trillion Skoldrs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 218,331 Skoldrs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.
Drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, children have lost interest in toy guns in favor of toy meth lab kits, and passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scocialist Provinces's national animal is the Smilodon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
