The Republic of Skaivania is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 597 million Skaivanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeydale. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Skaivanian economy, worth 40.1 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 67,134 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Visitors to Violet Rock City are stunned to learn that they must memorize the "99 Principles" before entering, corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics, murder is sanctioned if the legal paperwork is filled out correctly, and coalition governments are essential to passing new laws. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skaivania's national animal is the Grizzly bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Skaivania is ranked 37,564th in the world and 1,031st in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 3,570.65 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
