The Polar Bear Territory of Slatos is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Aleiki Ellochka with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 1.323 billion Slatosians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hokvosk. The average income tax rate is 51.0%.

The strong Slatosian economy, worth 100 trillion deniers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,187 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Acute politicians deride opposition members for being obtuse, money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Slatos, and the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slatos's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Slatos is ranked 56,496th in the world and 1,951st in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 35.9 Quips Per Hour.
