The Slumbring Card Farmr of Concrete Slab is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bn Shapiro with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, aversion to nipples, and frequent executions. The democratic population of 2.622 billion Concrt Slabians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ston City. The average income tax rate is 80.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Concrete Slabian economy, worth 480 trillion Stons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 183,230 Stons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

People often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, the new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with job applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods", and pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Concrete Slab's national animal is the Rd Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Concrete Slab is ranked 98,725th in the world and 4,452nd in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 42.22 on the Rand Index.
