The Rogue Nation of Slaughter Machine is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Death Himself with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, smutty television, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.451 billion Slaughterers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of A Bad Place. The average income tax rate is 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Slaughterian economy, worth 290 trillion vital organs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 200,413 vital organs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, young girls often attend the same schools as their children, and metal detectors at school gates make sure that teenagers are carrying at least one sidearm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slaughter Machine's national animal is the corpse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Idol Worship.

Slaughter Machine is ranked 41,971st in the world and 101st in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 29.53 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
