|Leader||the Honorable Mr Eliot Smith|
The Armed Republic of Skyridge is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by the Honorable Mr Eliot Smith with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.456 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 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Skyridgean economy, worth 429 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,229 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.
