The Colony of Slashpine Republic is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 16.461 billion Slashpine Republicans 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 Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Slashpine Republican economy, worth 446 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 27,154 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens select which government department gets their income tax florins each year, divorce is illegal, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and euthanasia is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slashpine Republic's national animal is the slash pine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Slashpine Republic is ranked 222,419th in the world and 5th in Conifer for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -1.14 on the Hayek Index.
