The United Socialist States of Skadifron is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Valdemar Ólafursson with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.516 billion Skadifroners enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ullelfrborg. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Skadifronic economy, worth 369 trillion revolutions a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery. Average income is 38,795 revolutions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, civil servants are no longer allowed to cross their t's, and young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skadifron's national animal is the mammoth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fírinnism.

Skadifron is ranked 169,887th in the world and 5,335th in Lazarus for Rudest Citizens, with 35.38 insults per minute.
