The Federal Republic of Skeldonya is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its smutty television, public floggings, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 462 million Skeldonyans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Administration and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tridius City. The average income tax rate is 32.6%.

The powerhouse Skeldonyan economy, worth 40.4 trillion coins a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 87,400 coins, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state, the government pours millions of coins into rehabilitation programs annually, the news is showing footage of Leader bullying an old man to the point of tears, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Skeldonya's national animal is the cardinal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Skeldonya is ranked 75,220th in the world and 2,909th in the South Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 5.13 Kickbacks Per Hour.
