The Great Therapodian Empire of Sskiss is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Isss' Raak with an even hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, ubiquitous missile silos, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 35.492 billion Sskiss 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 tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riiss Kaark. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Sskiss economy, worth a remarkable 8,011 trillion Raw Fleshes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 225,727 Raw Fleshes, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Sskiss's first free elections in recent memory have been successfully concluded, citizens must have a license to operate a computer, ten-year-olds regularly found their own political parties, and business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sskiss's national animal is the Tyrannosaurus Rex, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is We who survived became one.

Sskiss is ranked 2,133rd in the world and 4th in The Milky Way Galaxy for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 173.5 on the Hayek Index.
