Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Haven of Knockoutsloth is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Joe Slothster with an even hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 7.323 billion Slothians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slothak. The average income tax rate is 37.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Slothian economy, worth a remarkable 1,413 trillion Slowcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 193,036 Slowcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's new monarch embarrasses himself during state visits, meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government imposed restrictions, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, and Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Knockoutsloth's national animal is the Sloth, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Knockoutsloth is ranked 66,245th in the world and 1st in Slothlandia for Most Income Equality, scoring 40.52 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
