The Socialist Democracy of SkillCrossbones is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Jon Fairbanks with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 29.881 billion SkillCrossbonesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sheffield. The income tax rate is 100.0%.

The frighteningly efficient SkillCrossbonesian economy, worth a remarkable 6,777 trillion Simoleons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 226,826 Simoleons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jon Fairbanks claims to be the epitome of family values, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, economic planning is exalted as a human art form, and the weather in Sheffield is always 'pigeons with a chance of droppings'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SkillCrossbones's national animal is the Cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

SkillCrossbones is ranked 959th in the world and 1st in Halo for Smartest Citizens, with 214.34 Quips Per Hour.
