Messa Skyland

The Democratic Republic of Messa Skyland is a very large, genial nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 194 million Skylandians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 37.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Skylandian economy, worth 8.38 trillion sky tokens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. Average income is 43,185 sky tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits, coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. Crime is totally unknown. Messa Skyland's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Messa Skyland is ranked 32,169th in the world and 513th in 10000 Islands for Smartest Citizens, with 46.5 quips per hour.
