The Republic of SKM is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President John Victor F Kennedy-Strokin with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 4.178 billion Indigo enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andaman City. The average income tax rate is 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Indus economy, worth 705 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, fairly diversified 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 168,778 Indus Dollar Eroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, sheepish teenagers are making eye contact with their parents for the first time in a decade during state-enforced 'no-phones hour', SKM's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. 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 23,683rd in the world and 1st in The Alliance of Eros for Most Influential, scoring 1,487 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
