The REMARKABLY EXQUISITE of Skullkiss is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Madame Recluse with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.226 billion nerds 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eggs N Toast. The average income tax rate is 48.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The eggs n toast economy, worth 59.0 trillion $$$$$$$s a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 48,143 $$$$$$$s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, Madame Recluse has just been declared ruler of Skullkiss in an international press conference, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skullkiss's national animal is the Daddy longlegs, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Skullkiss is ranked 47,832nd in the world and 4th in C A R N I V A L for Most Inclusive, scoring 110 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
