The Scientific Demarchy of Slothia is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 3.579 billion are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever 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, 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.

The mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', and corporations are forbidden from employing outside the nation. 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 109th in The International and 120,728th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -11 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
