The Empire of Skaldia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Drac Leon with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.328 billion Skaldians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Law & Order, although Defense is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunspear. The average income tax rate is 1.8%.

The thriving Skaldian economy, worth 973 trillion Nites a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 132,837 Nites, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Edutainment video games are taking Skaldia's students to the next level, Bigtopian relations have become a minefield, Skaldians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, and the industries of Skaldia are coughing all the way to the bank. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Skaldia's national animal is the Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Leonism.

Skaldia is ranked 80,880th in the world and 1,809th in Osiris for Most Stationary, with 101.11731028488 Days.
