The Fair duchy of Shkolalia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Socialist duke Hans III with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 2.176 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 96.0%.

The powerhouse Shkolalian economy, worth 273 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 125,913 shkolalian digipounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, builders across Shkolalia are blocked up with orders for new public loos, they say that Sholalians made a dessert and called it peace, and one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber. 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 164,149th in the world and 20th in The United Council of Nations for Nudest, with 84.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
