The Violet Skeletal Republic of Skelingtons is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Raidyn Ryuu with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, lack of airports, and anti-smoking policies. The democratic, devout population of 4.242 billion Skelingtians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of BoneVille. The average income tax rate is 34.7%.

The all-consuming Skelingtian economy, worth 375 trillion Flash Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Cheese Exports, Retail, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 88,449 Flash Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, it's considered a civil right to be allowed to neglect and mistreat your own children, and human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skelingtons's national animal is the Thunder Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Skelingtons is ranked 73,566th in the world and 1st in Dragons Republic of Puppets for Largest Governments, scoring 15.26 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
