The Scientific Demarchy of Slothia is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its hatred of cheese. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 3.536 billion love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and the Environment. 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.

Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, the elderly live on a steady diet of canned beans in dreary government housing, meat-eating is frowned upon, and students in Slothia's schools rarely attend their classes. 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 38th in The International and 38,137th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 3 Whatever.
