The Semi-anarchist commonwealth of Skyhooked is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Shawn Bjornson with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.856 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, with Industry, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, 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 4,053 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 411,246 Kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes, and angry citizens complain that there isn't enough geographical diversity on the new banknotes. 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 14,097th in the world and 98th in NationStates for Most Secular, with 81.3 Atheism Rate.
