The Grand Duchy of Skiva is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Vika Samkriva with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.258 billion Skivans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aviksera City. The average income tax rate is 82.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Skivan economy, worth 274 trillion Rosenbuchts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 121,768 Rosenbuchts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, Skivan actors literally work from cradle to grave, military recruitment numbers are down as citizens object on 'moral grounds', and destitute athletes are forced to train in the street. Crime is totally unknown. Skiva's national animal is the Pantoran, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Skiva is ranked 26,849th in the world and 6th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Most Politically Free, scoring 86.71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
