The Democratic Kingdomę of The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mr Squiggle with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.867 billion Skaraborgians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hamsterdam. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Skaraborgian economy, worth 185 trillion Skaraborgsk Anorks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,499 Skaraborgsk Anorks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Facial disfigurement is a leading cause of supervillainy, government officials go door-to-door educating about the dangers of pseudoscience, 3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, and muggers are complimented on their enterprising spirit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg's national animal is the Hamster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Wheelism.

The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg is ranked 22,635th in the world and 1,030th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,106.5 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
