The Mighty Foundation of Concrete Slab is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Alistair Stonesworth with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 12.183 billion Concrete Slabians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stone City. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Concrete Slabian economy, worth a remarkable 3,360 trillion Stones a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 275,821 Stones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, teachers are skilled at leaving no evidence of child cruelty, and weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law. Crime is totally unknown. Concrete Slab's national animal is the Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Concrete Slab is ranked 175,479th in the world and 3,430th in the South Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 568.59 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
