The Scientific Demarchy of Slothia is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 4.342 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 97%. 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.

Abortions are routinely performed in Slothia's hospitals, cars are banned from built-up areas, students cut up leftover slothars during Arts and Crafts, and citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling". 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 3,223rd in Osiris and 115,615th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -20 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
