Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Land of Skoalstraightius is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Le Dude with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic, cheerful population of 9.421 billion Skoalstraightiusians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Right Lip Dip. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The Skoalstraightiusian economy, worth 886 trillion cans a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,133 cans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, and Le Dude's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skoalstraightius's national animal is the longcut deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Skoalstraightius is ranked 141,264th in the world and 63rd in The Bar on the corner of every region for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.78 Crimes Per Hour.
