The Armed Republic of Skyridge is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Honorable Mr Eliot Smith with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.674 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 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Skyridgean economy, worth 341 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 127,619 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
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, all footpaths have tollbooths, and the government props up questionable pizza establishments in the name of health. 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.
