The Queen's State of Skaha is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete lack of public education, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 16.23 billion Skahans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The very strong Skahan economy, worth 666 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 41,095 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 279,400 per year while the poor average 2,208, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Military funding has been stripped back, the government is avowedly atheist, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Skaha's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Skaha is ranked 14,459th in the world and 2nd in Knights of the Round Table for Most Armed, with 5.06 Weapons Per Person.
