The Haven of Knockoutsloth is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Joe Slothster with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 5.503 billion Slothians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slothak. The average income tax rate is 7.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Slothian economy, worth 919 trillion Slowcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 167,110 Slowcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and the government is pursuing a new programme aimed at promoting cultural sophistication. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Knockoutsloth is ranked 1st in The Rolpian League and 4,658th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 6 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
