The Gold LC Victory of Concrete Slab is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Ben Shapiro with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.445 billion Concrete Slabians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stone City. The average income tax rate is 78.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Concrete Slabian economy, worth 434 trillion Stones 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 177,583 Stones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction, it is said that a Concrete Slabian woman's work is never done, and every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead. 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 Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Concrete Slab is ranked 9,840th in the world and 218th in the South Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
