The Federal Kingdom of Skwar is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Thomas with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 10.026 billion Skwariots hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, corrupt, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skwar Capital District. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Skwariot economy, worth a remarkable 2,435 trillion escudoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 242,948 escudoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, the nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free, and pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Skwar's national animal is the Skwar eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Skwaricism.

Skwar is ranked 4,198th in the world and 93rd in the South Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 24 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
