The Kingdom of Skylus is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Emily and Harold Vixen with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, national health service, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 12.376 billion Skylusians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skyopolis. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Skylusian economy, worth 882 trillion rupees a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,288 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner, and employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skylus's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Threesolipsism.

Skylus is ranked 33,662nd in the world and 1st in The Federation of Anarchist Communes for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6,110.38 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
