The Decadent commonwealth of Skyhooked is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Stan Dixon with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, ubiquitous missile silos, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.759 billion Skyhookedians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Law & Order and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skyhooked City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Skyhookedian economy, worth a remarkable 2,687 trillion Kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 397,681 Kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Nighttime sightings of raccoons sporting Circle-A patches and bandanna masks are on the rise, rabbits are known to spontaneously explode without warning, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, and social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Skyhooked's national animal is the Parrot, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Refreshment cult.

Skyhooked is ranked 5,976th in the world and 1st in The Republic of Northern Powers for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
