The Blushingly Exquisite of Skullkiss is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jezelbellmez Novš with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 2.14 billion Skullynans 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 MerkurŽ. The average income tax rate is 49.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Skullynan economy, worth 102 trillion Kronor 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 47,748 Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, Jezelbellmez Novš has just been declared ruler of Skullkiss in an international press conference, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and clergy do their best to cover up their old tattoos. 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 Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Skullkiss is ranked 77,282nd in the world and 8th in Southern Florida for Nudest, with 139.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
