The Republic of SKM is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President John Victor F Kennedy-Strokin with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 3.993 billion Indigo 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, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andaman City. The average income tax rate is 75.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Indus economy, worth 633 trillion Indus Dollar Eroes 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 black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. 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 an impressive 158,686 Indus Dollar Eroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

SKM is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, the government has an "easy come, easy go" policy on youth crime, napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime is totally unknown. SKM's national animal is the Indus Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

SKM is ranked 15,435th in the world and 2nd in The Alliance of Eros for Best Weather, with 168 Meters Of Sunlight.
