The Sadly Abandoned Nation of Skycloud is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 655 million Skycloudians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 33.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Skycloudian economy, worth 27.6 trillion droplets a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,094 droplets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

On-duty Air Skycloud flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, bureaucrats close new businesses for not complying with the Penguin Packaging Index, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, and leading ethologists are being investigated for illegal electoral interference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skycloud's national animal is the eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Skycloud is ranked 80,479th in the world and 4th in Beyond the Horizon for Most Politically Free, scoring 71.17 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
