The National Triumvirate of Skappola is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Republican Revival Council with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, enforced nudity, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 12.061 billion Skappolans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palatino. The average income tax rate is 1.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Skappolan economy, worth a remarkable 3,718 trillion Republican Aures a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 308,294 Republican Aures, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, farting etiquette is taught in schools, water fights now end with thousands dead, and Brown Sugar 101 is a popular course at community colleges. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Skappola's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Skappola is ranked 46,071st in the world and 1,638th in Lazarus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,760.45 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
