The United Republic of Skeckoa is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Beatriz Guzman with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 13.388 billion Esquequis hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Law & Order and Welfare not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ciudad de Esquecóa. The average income tax rate is 1.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Esquequi economy, worth a remarkable 2,283 trillion Pesos a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 170,590 Pesos, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Brown Sugar 101 is a popular course at community colleges, the new airport at Mr. Giles' farm is panicking his sheep, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and grumpy old house owners demand that pedestrians get off their footpaths. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Skeckoa's national animal is the Ret-toed Tortoise, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Skeckoa is ranked 46,698th in the world and 31st in Latinoamerica Libre for Most Pro-Market, scoring 61 on the Rand Index.
