The Dominion of Skanov is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Reinhad Coract with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.681 billion Skanovians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaiserhalt. The average income tax rate is 32.0%.

The very strong Skanovian economy, worth 513 trillion Sessolas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 76,856 Sessolas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, Reinhad Coract's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and immersive video game experiences are interrupted by incessant disclaimer pop-ups. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skanov's national animal is the Feline, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Skanov is ranked 159,871st in the world and 2nd in Rumedsian Union for Most Cultured, scoring 58 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
