The Progressive Union of Slackertown is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Director of Government Operations with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 2.707 billion Slackertownians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of People's Place. The average income tax rate is 94.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Slackertownian economy, worth 366 trillion Cryptocurrencies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 135,543 Cryptocurrencies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The question of 'what is Director of Government Operations's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange, graffiti graces every city's streets, residential tower blocks are surrounded by warrens of concrete tunnels, and artists are pillars of society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slackertown's national animal is the Robot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Satanism.

Slackertown is ranked 3,607th in the world and 40th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,163.71 Tourists Per Hour.
