The Haven of Knockoutsloth is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Joe Slothster with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.919 billion Slothians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, liberal 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. The average income tax rate is 74%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Gambling.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, and the government has enacted freedom of information. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Buddhism, and its currency is the Slowcoin.

Knockoutsloth is ranked 12th in The Rolpian League and 93,402nd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -10 on the Hayek Index.
