The Commonwealth of Chip Skylark is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chip Skylark with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, cheerful population of 18.74 billion Chip Skylarkians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dimmsdale. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Chip Skylarkian economy, worth a remarkable 5,431 trillion Shiny Teeths 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 289,861 Shiny Teeths, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, there's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Dimmsdale. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chip Skylark's national animal is the Fairy Godparents, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Nope.

Chip Skylark is ranked 991st in the world and 28th in 10000 Islands for Smartest Citizens, with 231.84 quips per hour.
