The Spacity Satellite of Love of SkyFac TransOrbital is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Bryce Carrington with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, feral children, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 21.288 billion SkyFac TransOrbitalians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ring One. The average income tax rate is 52.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming SkyFac TransOrbitalian economy, worth a remarkable 1,799 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 84,523 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, the nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically, and decaying farm hamlets have twice the representation of major urban areas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SkyFac TransOrbital's national animal is the vacc worm, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

SkyFac TransOrbital is ranked 137,131st in the world and 33rd in Taijitu for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 29.54 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
