The Serene Dominion of Ancient Slobovia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress Iris IV with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 16.737 billion Ancient Slobovians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but inefficient Ancient Slobovian economy, worth 632 trillion guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,789 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Large areas of Ancient Slobovia are not accessible by the public, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and the government is pursuing a new programme aimed at promoting cultural sophistication. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ancient Slobovia's national animal is the silver bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
