The Scientific Demarchy of Slothia is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 3.983 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.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", Slothia has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, and mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights. 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 986th in Osiris and 25,709th in the world for Largest Populations, with 3,983 Capita (millions).
