The Principality of Slaughtveria is a huge, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 763 million Slaughtverians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 46.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Slaughtverian economy, worth 6.19 trillion bison dollars 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 a slick, highly efficient black market in Tourism, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. 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 8,117 bison dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, solid-gold toilets are Slaughtverian prisons' least expensive furnishings, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slaughtveria's national animal is the great white shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Slaughtveria is ranked 103,995th in the world and 4,327th in Lazarus for Largest Governments, scoring 12.85 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
