The Crimson Background of Concrete Slab is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Leader Aluminum with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, infamous sell-swords, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.061 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 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Concrete Slabian economy, worth 324 trillion Stones a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 157,338 Stones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming, arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, and the government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 152,461st in the world and 6,351st in the South Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 23.94 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
