The Jackbooted Autocracy of Lackluster sloths is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Great Slovenly One with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.807 billion Lackluster slothsians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lassitude. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.

Invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Lackluster sloths's national animal is the banana slug, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Phlegm, and its currency is the Turd.

Lackluster sloths is ranked 91st in Balder and 4,218th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 184 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
