The Democratic People's Republic of Slavestate is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Felix Dzerzhinsky with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 30.874 billion Slavestateans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slavestate City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Slavestatean economy, worth a remarkable 5,178 trillion credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 167,717 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, a new religious movement claims that people's souls are stored in phosphorous, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slavestate's national animal is the hog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Slavestate is ranked 157,283rd in the world and 85th in USSR for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.26 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
