The Fair duchy of Shkolalia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Socialist duke Hans III with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, avant-garde cinema, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, devout population of 1.735 billion Sholalians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of O'frit palace. The average income tax rate is 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Shkolalian economy, worth 186 trillion sholalian digipounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 107,540 sholalian digipounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears, the countryside is shrouded by wind farms, white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, and getting an autograph has become harder than ever. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shkolalia's national animal is the sholian angel peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is sho sho.

Shkolalia is ranked 168,255th in the world and 31st in The United Council of Nations for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -4.43 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
