The Kingdom of Skhaggerstan is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, triple-decker prams, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 523 million New Hyperboreans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Manchester. The average income tax rate is 75.5%.

The powerhouse Skhaggerstanian economy, worth 46.1 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is 88,088 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Children often kick Bronze Snakes for amusement, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, judges are rumored to find in favor of whoever bribes them the most, and lobbyists are trying to convince government to recategorize most natural disasters as "non-critical naturogenic inconveniences". 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 51,800th in the world and 7th in Pengia Terrum for Best Weather, with 115 Meters Of Sunlight.
