The Forbundsrepublikken of Skallen is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Katherine Akselsen with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 14.003 billion Skalls are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mazenguard. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Skallenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,590 trillion Monetæres a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 113,606 Monetæres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers, toilet paper is considered a non-essential item in the embargo against Brasilistan, Brasilistan has been announced as the nation's newest colony, and the nation has gained millions of new citizens overnight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skallen's national animal is the Skallenese Ferret, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Skallen is ranked 180,687th in the world and 7th in Realism and RP for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -26.35 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
