The Fair duchy of Shkolalia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Socialist duke Hans III with an even hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 1.752 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 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Shkolalian economy, worth 189 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 108,264 sholalian digipounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, party-lovers often change religions just for the weekend, and spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches. 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 22,991st in the world and 8th in The United Council of Nations for Most Developed, scoring 79.12 on the Human Development Index.
