The Long and Winding Road of SkodaTruck Drivers is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 18.511 billion SkodaTruck Driversians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Motor City. The average income tax rate is 48.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming SkodaTruck Driversian economy, worth a remarkable 1,025 trillion Das a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 55,406 Das, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government is lending a hand to private industry, kissing cousins produce the heartiest babies, immigrants complain that natives keep coming over and taking their jobs, and write-in candidate 'Leader Sucks' is perennially popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. SkodaTruck Drivers's national animal is the Sko, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

SkodaTruck Drivers is ranked 156,593rd in the world and 8th in 1980s America for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 28,645.03 Standard Monetary Units.
