The Great Empire of Skhaggerstan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Daniel with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.116 billion New Hyperboreans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Manchester. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Skhaggerstanian economy, worth 110 trillion Pounds 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 large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 98,893 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Clergy do their best to cover up their old tattoos, suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, theatre may or may not be changing for the better but it is being changed for good, and groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skhaggerstan's national animal is the Bronze Snake, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Skhaggerstan is ranked 38,773rd in the world and 4th in Pengia Terrum for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 4.33 Bank.
