The Democratic People's Republic of Slavestate is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Felix Dzerzhinsky with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 26.267 billion Slavestateans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slavestate City. The income tax rate is 100%.
The enormous but sluggish Slavestatean economy, worth a remarkable 3,752 trillion credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 142,856 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Sections of the police receive paramilitary training, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, hog sanctuaries have been taken over by hydraulic fracturing sites, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Slavestate to be bombproof. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slavestate's national animal is the hog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
Slavestate is ranked 93rd in USSR and 126,260th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 11 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
