The Imperial Province of Skyrim is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tiber Septim with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.46 billion Nords enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solitude. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Skyrimian economy, worth 875 trillion Septims a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 83,670 Septims, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, graffiti graces every city's streets, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skyrim's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Skyrim is ranked 28,942nd in the world and 28th in Spear Danes for Most Pacifist, with 113.56 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
