The Free Provinces of Northwest Slobovia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 30.189 billion Northwest Slobovians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.4%.

The very strong Northwest Slobovian economy, worth a remarkable 4,063 trillion slobmarks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 134,595 slobmarks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 676,009 per year while the poor average 14,999, a ratio of 45.1 to 1.

College students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. Crime is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Northwest Slobovia's national animal is the slobovian boar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Northwest Slobovia is ranked 15,674th in the world and 314th in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 83.6 on the Rand Index.
