The Kingdom of Skylus is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emily and Harold Vixen with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 6.476 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 large government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skyopolis. The average income tax rate is 68.3%.

The strong Skylusian economy, worth 458 trillion rupees a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 70,809 rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

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 55,643rd in the world and 4th in The Federation of Anarchist Communes for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 92.16 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
