The Fair duchy of Shkolalia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Socialist duke Hans III with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.385 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 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Shkolalian economy, worth 522 trillion shkolalian digipounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 154,215 shkolalian digipounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, all the world's a stage for Shkolalian political theatrics, monarchs only get custody of the royal crown on holidays and weekends, and the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen. 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 shkolian angel peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is sho sho.

Shkolalia is ranked 78,550th in the world and 2nd in The United Council of Nations for Most Extreme, scoring 22.3 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
