The Scientific Demarchy of Slothia is a massive, economically powerful nation, notable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 4.177 billion Slothians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slumber-upon-Bed. The average income tax rate is 96%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, and the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists. Crime is totally unknown. Slothia's national animal is the sloth, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the slothar.

Slothia is ranked 828th in Osiris and 17,017th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 82 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
