The Republic of SKM is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President John Victor F Kennedy-Strokin with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working population of 3.779 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andaman City. The average income tax rate is 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Indus economy, worth 541 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, quite specialized 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 143,251 Indus Dollar Eroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, citizens who don't attend the nation's massive military parades tend to disappear overnight, eight-year-olds with lemonade stands have been known to be locked up on charges of embezzlement, and the term cold case has taken on a very literal meaning. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SKM's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

SKM is ranked 44,845th in the world and 4th in The Alliance of Eros for Nudest, with 188.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
