The Holy Yellow Banana Duck of Skundi is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Great Banana Duck with a fair hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, anti-smoking policies, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.189 billion Skundians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yer Local Duck Pond. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Skundian economy, worth a remarkable 1,029 trillion Banana Ducks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 166,283 Banana Ducks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, passengers often cause a stink on public transport, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and the explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape Skundi. Crime is totally unknown. Skundi's national animal is the Banana Duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Skundi is ranked 17,966th in the world and 4th in Lorania for Highest Economic Output, with 1,029 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
