The Forgotten Empire of SkyDip is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Claire DuFray with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and national health service. The compassionate population of 6.695 billion SkyDipians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous 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 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient SkyDipian economy, worth a remarkable 1,341 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 amazing 200,381 Standardized Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, tourists visiting the nation are harangued for being capitalist pig-dogs, and debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace. 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 8,874th in the world and 293rd in Europeia for Most Influential, scoring 5,683 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
