The Sultanate of North Sloughtown Metropolis is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its teetotalling pirates, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 462 million North Sloughtowner are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sloughtown. The average income tax rate is 77.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped North Sloughtownian economy, worth 16.3 trillion spirits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 35,343 spirits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rural North Sloughtowner stare in awe at the bright lights of the big cities, national magistrates in Sloughtown are overwhelmed with cases of petty larceny and attempted witchcraft, government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, and the best spies are positively radiant after completing a big mission. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Sloughtown Metropolis's national animal is the molerat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

North Sloughtown Metropolis is ranked 80,683rd in the world and 51st in Wysteria for Most Cultured, scoring 67 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
