The Union of Soviet States of Slaytania is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Stalinovich with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, digital currency, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.937 billion Slaytanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of South of Heaven. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Slaytanian economy, worth a remarkable 8,898 trillion Strummers 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, 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 a breathtaking 638,477 Strummers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, Air Slaytania tickets have reached sky-high prices due to a complete monopoly on air travel, and the upper class have been throwing riots after hunting was recently banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slaytania's national animal is the House Giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Stalinism.

Slaytania is ranked 149,418th in the world and 1,051st in 10000 Islands for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -826.96 on the Hayek Index.
