The People's Republic of Skovaholt is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 494 million Skovaholtians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Morcrest. The average income tax rate is 85.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Skovaholtian economy, worth 35.3 trillion Stryks 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 dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 71,389 Stryks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, the once prosperous capital is in utter decline, kissing cousins produce the heartiest babies, and getting an autograph has become harder than ever. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skovaholt's national animal is the Pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Skovaholt is ranked 21,861st in the world and 358th in Europe for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,002.52 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
