The United Northern Kingdom of Skelleftella is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Gustaf XIII with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.509 billion Skelleftellans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Skelleftellan economy, worth 254 trillion Skelleftellan Kronars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 168,540 Skelleftellan Kronars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night, citizens can't decide whether to be proud or horrified by the country's colonial history, politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, and swarms of present-laden delivery drones blot out the sun before major holidays. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Skelleftella's national animal is the Arctic Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Skelleftella is ranked 26,166th in the world and 397th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,002.62 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
