The Egalitarian Protectorate of Slandiltopia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Arthur Fleck with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.964 billion Slandiltopians 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Society City. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Slandiltopian economy, worth 466 trillion V-bucks 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 Trout Farming and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 117,615 V-bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The endangered saltwater humpback Laser Pigeon is only seen in captivity programs, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, and employers are keenest on employees who lack family values. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Slandiltopia's national animal is the Laser Pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Slandiltopia is ranked 26,911th in the world and 1,237th in Balder for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 97.51 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
