The Slightly Oppressive Republic of SLAM-ER is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Core Consciousness with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 33.174 billion SLAM-ERians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Collective. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient SLAM-ERian economy, worth an astonishing 11,616 trillion kuans a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 350,171 kuans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tightness of border controls in SLAM-ER leave a little to be desired, one does not simply walk into the tundra, printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins, and sleeping on the job is recommended. Crime is totally unknown. SLAM-ER's national animal is the robot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

SLAM-ER is ranked 8,428th in the world and 27th in Canada for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 5 Valid Endorsements.
