The Grand Duchy of Skamor is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 549 million Skamorians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Red Ridge City. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Skamorian economy, worth 43.9 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,004 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Destitute athletes are forced to train in the street, strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, recognizing the Skamorian flag qualifies you for citizenship, and older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skamor's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Skamor is ranked 187,250th in the world and 1,326th in 10000 Islands for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.97 Crimes Per Hour.
