The Serene Dominion of Ancient Slobovia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Iris IV with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 21.764 billion Ancient Slobovians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. The average income tax rate is 74.3%.

The strong Ancient Slobovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,119 trillion guilders a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 51,460 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Large areas of Ancient Slobovia are not accessible by the public, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and the government is pursuing a new programme aimed at promoting cultural sophistication. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ancient Slobovia's national animal is the silver bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ancient Slobovia is ranked 27,043rd in the world and 715th in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 165.84 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
