Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Armed Republic of Skyridge is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by the Honorable Mr Eliot Smith with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate population of 2.344 billion Skyridgeans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Parnassus SCT. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Skyridgean economy, worth 303 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,489 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Skyridgeans incessantly needle their doctors for relief, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, and all footpaths have tollbooths. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skyridge's national animal is the Vulture, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Skyridge is ranked 17,263rd in the world and 842nd in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 110.86 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
