The Semi-anarchist commonwealth of Skyhooked is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Shawn Bjornson with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 10.23 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 Industry, Welfare, 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 4,208 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 frequent. Average income is an amazing 411,354 Kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation. 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 6,040th in the world and 135th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 6,059.71 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
