The Kingdom of Skylus is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emily and Harold Vixen with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 8.699 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 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 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Skylusian economy, worth 617 trillion rupees a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,018 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 10,381st in the world and 2nd in The Federation of Anarchist Communes for Healthiest Citizens, with 13.46 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
