Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Drowsy Republic of Slothia is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.01 billion sluggards 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.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slumber-upon-Bed. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The thriving Sleepy economy, worth 771 trillion goosefeathers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 128,449 goosefeathers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers have seized control of the economy, Coco the Clown has been elected to the nation's parliament, burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slothia's national animal is the three-toed sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Slothia is ranked 2,228th in the world and 71st in The Communist Bloc for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 98.19 Effective Tax Rate.
