The Forgotten Empire of SkyDip is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Claire DuFray with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, infamous sell-swords, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate population of 6.421 billion SkyDipians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castle-On-The-Cliffs. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient SkyDipian economy, worth a remarkable 1,270 trillion Standardized Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 197,804 Standardized Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist, the nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and they say that Claire DuFray's personal computer is full of naked pictures of the Emperor of Maxtopia. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SkyDip's national animal is the Glowing Kliffin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

SkyDip is ranked 647th in the world and 8th in Europeia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 13,398 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
