The People's Republic of SkillCrossbones is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jon Fairbanks with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 34.177 billion SkillCrossbonesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sheffield. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient SkillCrossbonesian economy, worth a remarkable 7,835 trillion Simoleons 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 229,257 Simoleons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Going on a diet invalidates your passport, angry citizens complain that there isn't enough geographical diversity on the new banknotes, hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", and tourists visiting the nation are harangued for being capitalist pig-dogs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SkillCrossbones's national animal is the Cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

SkillCrossbones is ranked 33,959th in the world and 5th in ChapoChat for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 259,661 Standard Monetary Units.
