OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Haven of Knockoutsloth is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Joe Slothster with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.576 billion Slothians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slothak. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

The nation's gigantic air force is both respected and feared, commuter vessels have trouble staying afloat due to increased passengers, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, and record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Knockoutsloth's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Buddhism, and its currency is the Slowcoin.
