The Shifting Realms of Skribbopopolis is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Maxwell The Supreme Overlord of All with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.3 billion Skribbs are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skrobblbobble. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Skrib economy, worth 174 trillion Skrobbles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 134,517 Skrobbles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, the Dracolisk is protected from hunting and slowly coming back from the brink of extinction, and atheists on vacation find Pepsism's scriptures make useful doorstops. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skribbopopolis's national animal is the Dracolisk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pepsism.

Skribbopopolis is ranked 19,384th in the world and 1st in Skribbonivstan for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 3,371.85 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
