The Valued Puppet of Skies1 is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Skies with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, devout population of 5.97 billion Skies1ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of In honor of the Western Colony Natives. The average income tax rate is 49.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Skies1ian economy, worth 445 trillion Yen 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, broadly diversified black market in Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, 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 74,600 Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skies1's national animal is the Cat.

Skies1 is ranked 218,643rd in the world and 2nd in Birthday for Rudest Citizens, with 18.72 Insults Per Minute.
