The Don't Endorse Me of A Slanted Black Stripe is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Reluctant Delegate with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 21.922 billion Slantees 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.

The medium-sized, 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 San Francisco. The average income tax rate is 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Slanted Black Stripean economy, worth a remarkable 4,059 trillion stripenotes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 185,191 stripenotes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, vehicular homicide by Slanted Black Stripean ambassadors is a leading cause of death throughout the world's capital cities, calling dibs is an unalienable right, and a vast monorail network carries people all over the country. Crime is totally unknown. A Slanted Black Stripe's national animal is the zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is All are Welcome.

A Slanted Black Stripe is ranked 1,473rd in the world and 23rd in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 71.44 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
